Downy Woodpecker Photos

These photos of a downy woodpecker are the first wildlife photos I've gotten to take with the Canon 10D. This bird was about 75 feet away, but I was able to get some decent shots with the 300mm zoom lens. The 10D has a magnification factor, making the 300mm actually more powerful than on a 35-mm film camera.
