[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These are resident species of West & Central Himalayas. Male has red crown while the female (this pic) has black.

Shot early in the morning; hence, the slanting rays highlighting the upper part of the head. (Maybe, should have used flash)

Hi, Satirtha. A lovely capture of this woodpecker just about to start picking on the little worms. Good exposure, lighting and depth of field. I like the complementary colors of nature as well as the light shining through the leaves. Overall a lovely composition of this pretty bird. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Satirtha,
Your Scaly-bellied Woodpecker is very pretty with the olive green coloring on it's back and wings, black streaked head, checkered wing tips, polka-dotted tail and scaly belly. Captured in a typical woodpecker pose and displaying good focus. Great eye contact with a tad bit of catchlight.
The way the sunlight filters through the trees can at times cause some disturbing light patterns on your subject, but this particular shot is not bad at all. I usually use flash to bring out the true colors and sometimes for this very reason that you mentioned. Well done!!

One of the best poster of the week indeed amazing lights by lit up 3 dimensions details well done SATIRTHA GHOSH
