The Downy Woodpecker
is the smallest of our woodpeckers. About 6-7 inches long and about 2 inches shorter than the look-alike Hairy woodpecker.
With a white back and white underparts its black wings are white spotted and it has a black-and-white-streaked face. The males have red on the nape and females do not.

You'll find these birds in open woodlands, orchards, parks, and backyards.

Very good point of view, Jeanpaul. This is how one would usually see a woodpecker on a tree. Very sharp focus and nice colours and details.
TFS.

Superb capture and composition again, Jeanpaul. Terrific POV (very natural) and good DOF (great clarity on the feathers), with a nicely blurred background.
Kudos and best regards
Silke

Bonjour jean-Paul ! J'aime beaucoup ces oiseaux, mais je n'en ai jamais vu de mes propres yeux. Excellents détails, belle composition et un POV assez original, qui nous montre le dessous de l'oiseau et qui nous permet de bien voir la petite patte griffue. Du beau travail !
Valérie.

Hello JP,
Lovely bird captured in this fine pose!
I like your point of view, and you maintain good textures in the feather coat under somewhat difficult exposure conditions...
Pleasing lines, well composed and with good balance between elements!
Greetings,

Bonjour Jean-Paul,

Tu as obtenu une très beau POV pour ce beau Pic Mineur. J'aime bien la petite étincelle dans l'oeil! On voit bien également que les pics sont équipés de 4 doigts opposés 2 à 2 pour mieux s'accrocher aux arbres. Personnellement, j'aurais préféré avoir plus d'espace à droite de l'oiseau et celui-ci à gauche de la photo puisque le côté gauche est un peu surexposé. Belle photo tout de même et merci pour le partage :-)

Michel

Bonjour Jean-Paul,
résultat étonnant considérant le contre-jour. Les détails et les couleurs sont restés précis. Félicitations!
