Hi Jeanpaul,
Quite a good flash shot, I'm amazed by the textures in the feather coat... The colours are good too!
I might try to crop a bit tighter on the bird from bottom ang right hand side, but that is a matter of personal taste...

Lovely image, Jeanpaul.
The ploys one uses for enticing the birds for a photograph is innocent enough in intention but it DOES leave sometimes an undesirable impact on the viewer. For instance, I would have been happier watching the woodpecker here pecking the tree and not the container of goodies.

hi Jeanpaul
beautiful woodpecker. point of view, colors, contrast are great. frame is harmonious with photo. regards

Bonjour Jean-Paul,

J'aime bien ce pic. J'aime la façon que tu nous le présente. Le peu de lumière disponible est bien compensé par l'utilisation du flash. L'oiseau est ainsi mit en valeur. Pour le "block" de nourriture, c'est certain qu'il dérange un peu mais la beauté de cet oiseau prend le dessus aisement. Merci pour la photo et bon travail.


Hi Jeanpaul,
A lovely bird and lovely capture indeed. We have to try our best to live with nature, may be you just provide a good meal for this bird. Excellent capture with flash.

Nice shot JeanPaul. Difficult subject to capture and you have done well here. Regards, Rob

Hi Jeanpaul
Nice shot JeanPaul.Good composition and POV.
Well done


Hi Jeanpaul,
Nice flashwork to get this after sundown.
Great sharpness, detail and color also. I think the dark BG sets off your subject well...
Now if we could just lose that feeder ;-}}
Well done & TFS!
