How I Got The Photo: Red-headed Woodpecker Feeding Young

I was stopped on the tour road near the entrance (Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge) talking to a friend when we both noticed Red-headed Woodpeckers nearby. While I was watching the Woodpeckers, I noticed that they had a nest in a tree nearby. I came back a few days later and got this photo. I had my camera resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
