Great Spotted Seed-eater

Observation - Great Spotted Seed-eater - UK and Ireland. Description: I was practising with my relatively new 1.4X extender which, on my long lens, requires manual focussing. Cameras designed for auto-focus don't come with much help for manual focussing, like a Fresnel lens or a split image, so it takes some getting used to

I was practising with my relatively new 1.4X extender which, on my long lens, requires manual focussing. Cameras designed for auto-focus don't come with much help for manual focussing, like a Fresnel lens or a split image, so it takes some getting used to. This male Great Spotted Woodpecker, one of several in the woods behind us, seems clear, though, and there's no window glare, thankfully.
