V1 shoots the Great Spotted Woodpecker

Great Spotted Woodpecker, Dendrocopos major (male)
Nikon 1 V1 + FT1 + Nikon 70-300 VR @ 300mm
f/9, 1/250secs, ISO 160

I shall hunt this fellow till I get a SHARP one of him! 810mm can be challenging ... I guess good practice for when I can get a real big gun :)

Here are some more attempts with this combination (which looks like this) ... Blue Tit #1, Blue Tit #2
