My first share-able bird image

Hairy Woodpecker

Coolpix P5100/UR-E20 Adapter/TV 28MM digiadapter-32mm Plossl-60 degree diagonal-TV-76

...plenty of room for improvement, but seeing those feather barbs has got me hooked. I guess if these scopes can split double stars at 50 light years, they can resolve a bird across the deck.

Thanks, AM Community, for helping make this fun possible.

Beautiful Shot. How far away was the Woodpecker?

Thanks, All.

Bird was not too far away, maybe 15-20 feet, on the other side of my sliding glass door.

Nice one.


There's no substitute for fine glass!
