Good work again as always...
Orange and red colour are a delight.
Background grey goes very well with the above mentioned colours...

Don't know what happened to what I just wrote. This was worth the 3 hours in the cold. Just beautiful. I love the red eye and sparkling eye.

Nicely done Greg! Very sharp anf nicely composed image.
Looks to me like it was worth the effort.

I really enjoy reading about your technique. I certainly admire your perseverance. Numb toes finish me in a hurry. So, guess what I got.... Battery heated socks... can you imagine?! They are super. A size "D" battery keeps toes toasty for 7-8 hours. Yo managed great sharpness on the whole bird with that very shallow depth of field. Nice work.

Nice crop to this shot. Excellent exposure and beautiful clear, sharp details, topped off with a catchlight in the eye. Congrats!
Another splendid shot from you and a very beautiful bird you present us here today!
It seems your efforts were worth it and the result is a wonderful one!
The 1.4x teleconverter sure aided you to capture such a charming portrait and gave you that extra "mile" so that the head details would really be impeccably sharp.
The colors are indeed brilliant but still keep a very natural look, the DOF is excellent and the vertical composition great!
Bravo, my friend for another top notch picture, and TFS
PS: Do you by any chance have a picture of your hide? I'd be very curious of how it looks like and what magic powers it has that help you take such close shots.

Great note. Thank you very much. And Great quality of picture.
I like its perfect details, amazing colours, effective and delicate lighting. I also like the diagonal composition of the shot, framing and presentation. Result is very impressive. Superb done and TFS.

Very nice details & exposure only wished you had moved a little to the right so there'd be less of the OOF trunk.
Nevertheless very good.

Another great portrait Greg with the accustomed quality of your images.
Except for the too wide frame for my taste, a practically perfect capture.

Gregory, maybe I'd try to add a little bit more of lighting, but it's just an opinion.
Apart from that, excellent colors, sharpness, pov and composition.

Beautiful close up of this woodpecker!
I like so much the crop and details shown in this picture.
A very good POV to catch the pose of the bird and all the clear and sharp details seen, as always.
You managed so well the DOF to use the overcast sky and turn it into a background that works pretty well in the photo.
Very good the composition.
Congratulations, thanks for share and my best regards,

I really admire your patience waiting in a cold hide! But this is obviously the answer if you want to get such brilliant photos of beautiful birds as you do. Very sharp and simple composition of this woodpecker in great focus. Lovely colours too.
TFS and regards, Ulla
