My Friend Flicker by clippercarrillo My Friend Flicker by clippercarrillo
My hope is that you will enjoy this photo of the breeding male flicker which was shot from a blind at a distance of about twelve feet, with 600mm worth of lens. Lighting is always a challenge under the foliage at dawn, not to mention how I had hoped that the flicker would pose in such a way as to expose the red behind his head as well as the yellow underneath his tail, and both within the depth of field. Luck will favor those who are obsessed with birds. The why of it has something to do with sharing a very special moment with the viewer, knowing that a blessing shared is then twice blessed. Photo taken in Kansas City, Kansas, in my garden.

Thanks, Andrea. Its more the case of patience and desire than talent, and the bird supplies the art. Better yet, it serves no discernible virtue in the way of things,

Too bad for the hot spot on the lower leg, or I would call it perfect,
