I was puzzled by the line separating black and white areas in my woodpecker photo posted yesterday.  After pondering it over night, I went back four years for another woodpecker shot made with the same camera and lens, but in mid-day overhead lighting.  A similar separating line can be observed, but it is a neutral gray and is hardly noticed.  In yesterday's late afternoon shot, the low-lying sun can be seen reflecting off bright parts of the feeder.  I believe the sun is reflecting off the line in the feathers, giving it a golden tan color.  So much for the "golden hour" always giving good pictures.
