Once more the magic tree worked. It was late evening and I was talking to someone when we heard a ‘pecking’ sound on wood. Now what else could it be. And in the fading light I saw this woodpecker on the same dry tree near my window. I rushed to get the camera hoping that technology would handle the poor light conditions. Luckily it did and here is the shot.

There is this dead tree opposite our farmhouse that has proved to be a great spot for getting good photos of small birds. The birds stand out very clearly as there are no leaves. Also it is outside my window and I can run out with a camera at a moments notice. Here I managed to get a long-tailed shrike in a pretty good pose.
Started my collection of bird photos at Acres Wild by getting this photo of a Brahmini Kite that was hanging around our pond in the hope of getting some fish… I think. Later when I went closer to the pond for a better photo it sensed some danger and flew away circling in widely and then disappearing over the hill.
Have to be more subtle next time.
