    Those are some clear shots. Which camera did you use for the photos and video? I've never seen one actually making a hole like that.

    Good shots, did you have camera on a tripod? I have problems holding that still for video.. Downys are cool little birds.. one of the least shy woodpeckers as well.

    Ann, for pictures: E-520 & 70-300, for video: Panasonic HC-V500 camcorder.

    Jim, both handheld, video was pretty easy to take - downy did let me very close - a few feet away, little bird didn't care about me being so close at all - he was too busy at pecking the hole in the branch of the tree.

    Thanks for looking...

    I've just bought 2nd Sima SVP-3 Mini Video Prop Chest Support: Newegg.com - Sima SVP-3 VideoProp
    It's good not only for camcorder, but for DSLR too:

    Actually, I could you use one - same device for both - DSRL & camcorder, I've bought 2nd, because I don't want to change back and forth an attachment that snaps-in...So, I can use same strap, just change DSRL or camera with attachments already on...
