Pileated Woodpecker Pair in Denville NJ

Pileated Woodpecker Pair
Denville NJ
September 2021

On a recent morning walk around the block in Lake Arrowhead I came across Mr & Mrs Woodpecker spiraling their ways around the base of a tree. In my experience, Pileateds may tolerate a close approach by a stealthy photographer.

This was a challenging shot in order to freeze the action of two moving birds in the shade. This lucky exposure occurred at 1/60th of a second which is a chance occurrence for handholding a telephoto lens.
