Pileated Woodpecker – A Clear Photo at Last!

I've tried capturing the pileated woodpecker's image many times, but they are suspicious birds who fly away when they see a person moving. Sometime's I get a picture from the window but usually there's some haze from shooting through the double panes.

Yesterday two pileated woodpeckers visited our deck. Of course I picked up the closest camera, and of course they didn't stick around to pose. Fortunately, they stayed within view long enough for me to get this picture of the male on a dogwood tree. Apparently the sunlight was just right because I don't see any distortion from the window glass.
