An unusual pose for a woodpecker, Sebastien.
Woodpeckers usually have their beaks in the tree trunk.
Come to think of it, they are usually vertical on the trunk. : 0
Sharp details and good exposure on this pretty bird.
I like the fluffy tufts around his beak.
TFS. : )

Bonjour Sebastien,
Nicely capturing this cute bird, well focused, nice DoF, sharp, but slighly noisy BG.
Great shot.
