Golden hour Pileated

This pileated woodpecker was captured this evening just as the sun headed for the horizon.  He was nice enough to give me the curious pose.

THANKS guys!

I am lucky to have the pileateds in my area.  Years ago I was able to spend many hours shooting a pileated nest site, which because of the steep hill it was on, was almost on eye level for me.  My equipment was rather more basic then, but still a great experience.
