Northern Flicker

This Northern Flicker was photographed in Peace Valley. As we were walking back to our car, I spotted the bird on top of a bare tree across an open grassy field.

D7200, Nikkor 200-500mm | 1/800, f/5.6 @ ISO 320

I like that it is a well exposed photo. The Flicker is a beautiful bird, with a distinct shape but it doesn’t show up too well here since there isn’t much detail in the photo. This is entirely due to my lacklustre sneaking skills, as I carefully(in my mind) closed in on the Flicker, it flew off.
