This is a close up of a male pileated woodpecker searching for food within a freshly dug out hole. Taken in the rain at the Britannia Woods in Ottawa Ontario Canadausing my Nikon d300 and 200-400 lens with fill flash. I shot this bird for about 45 minutes during which time the slight rain turned to snow (it was early spring).
