Pileated woodpeckers are common in my neighborhood, but usually very shy. This one started hammering away less than 15ft behind me as I was assembling a lawnmower in my driveway, and it stuck around long enough for me to get my gear.

Nothing unusual on the processing– white balance, levels, USM, color adjustments and a vignette around the edge.
