If there was ever to be an “America’s Top (Bird) Model”, it would have to be this studly Northern Flicker. This fella’ was all business roundin’ up the girls as Spring is approaching. I photographed a lot of woodpeckers this past weekend with some friends. We spotted at least four different species of woodpeckers, along with a whole lot of other interesting winged critters. The Norther Flickers are so beautifully patterned, and their assertive behavior certainly suits them. This image was photographed with a Canon 1D Mk4 and Canon 500mm f/4 lens w/1.4 TC.
