Congratulations, Ron! A beautiful win! #3638660

Ron Jones 11/27/2006 12:23:17 PM

Donna, I didn't find him there. It's a composit. I shoot the birds at my feeder and place them in a more suitable background. It takes far less patience and luck.

Nice photo and congrats on the win. Now I hope you rewarded him with some peanuts after he posed so nicely for you. ;-) #3669909

Ron Jones 12/5/2006 1:32:06 PM

Thanks, Donna.
Lis, this little fellow has made a bit of money for me in print sales. I'm very sure to keep plenty of suet in the feeder for him and his friends.
Thanks for your comment.

Colleen Farrell 12/9/2006 12:42:16 PM

That reminds me--I need to buy suet! I never see downy woodpeckers, although we have them around here. We get lots of the big acorn woodpeckers. ANYWAY, this is a terrific photo--you always capture our feathered friends so beautifully. Congratulations on your well-deserved win! #3684828

Ron Jones 12/9/2006 3:45:29 PM

Thanks, Colleen.
All kinds of woodpeckers are attracted to suet; hairy, downey and redbellied.
