Yesterday, I posted an article with some of the images from this weekend, when I concentrated on bird photography. In that article, I mentioned seeing several fledglings begging to be fed while following their parents around through the trees. One of those fledglings was a Red-bellied Woodpecker, and I included one image of it in a tree behind some leaves. I posted that image because I liked the way the sun was lighting up part of its face, and because you could clearly see its black and white feathered back.
I was able to photograph that same woodpecker fledgling as it was flapping its wings, as fledglings do before and after leaving the nest. Unfortunately, when the parent woodpecker returned with food, they both flew away. (Click on the below image to see it in more detail.)
Tomorrow, I expect to post more images from Italy.
