Hola Luis
Amazing beauty. What a colorful woodpecker. I keen on birds of Costa Rica. I make plans to visit your marvellous country. I hope in next year.
You are lucky not only to see this and many pretty species, but also capture them with great shots. This is also great. Timing, exposure, eye contact, composition and POV/DOF süper. Coloration also splendid.
Thanks for sharing this beauty. Best wishes

Hello Luis,
What a neat looking woodpecker you have posted today. Love the rich colors and unique markings. Wonderful eye contact with that ever sought after tiny bit of catch light in it's eye. Well done!!
