Hola Alain

Una muy byena imagen, de este pajaro que no conocía, y con esa cresta de color rojo. Un bun Pov y una agradable vista.

Un saludo Antonio

A very nice closeup Alain. I don't think I've seen as close a shot of one of these Hairy Woodpeckers. Good detail and nice framing. I like the eye-catching light as well. Very detailed splash of red on the top of his head too. TFS Trevor

Wow, this is a really cool picture! I love the clearness of it and how you got it mouth ajar.

beautiful bird, excellent shot ,

Hello Alain,
nice composition of this beautiful and lovely coloured and patterned woody.
Very sharp indeed and the background enhances it very well.
the fungi grown trunk is very special in givng a good nature and natural view.
Very sharp and very detailed shot.
