I hardly get any chance to shoot birds. Occasionally I shoot pigeons or sea gulls, so naturally when saw a woodpecker on a feeder, I was excited. Luckily, I had my 200mm f2.8 Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar with me and I was able to make two pictures, one at f4 and this one at f2.8, before the bird flew away. Even luckier, both pictures were in focus, as it's not easy to do with a 200mm lens.

  1. Great image. I just got into vintage lenses with my T3i. Love the blog!
