Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

This is the same Male Red Bellied Woodpecker that I photographed in two rapid shots, one after the other in less than a second apart and combined the two pictures together into a diptych ..He changed the position of his head in those two shots and he is stretching his body a little higher on the right hand side but it shows how quickly they can change their position in that short of time span. it helped that the lighting was the same in the two captures but still not an easy project as it required aligning and erasing around the edges to fit it together so there would not be a line between. I especially loved the expression on his face and it seemed like he was curious of what I was doing. It takes awhile to gain the trust of a wild bird such as this, but I think they know who feeds them by now and they are truly an inspiration!

Best View in Light box! Thank you!!!
