A juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) about to take off from the rusty handle of an old garden roller, which he/she had been using as a perch. The background consists of various garden shrubs in a range of different colours.

Many thanks for your support of my last upload - really appreciated as always Smile
