Red-headed Woodpecker Photo

This photo pretty much sums up my relationship with these guys.  I see them all the time, but whenever I get within 1/4 mile of one, they either fly off, or simply rotate to the backside of whatever perch they're on.  At least this guy popped his head up so I could get SOMETHING of him!!  Photo taken on July 31st, 2008 in Minnehaha County, South Dakota with Canon 40D, 400 5.6L.
