First of all many thanks to Ju, Bob and CarolG for the wonderful awards. Your commenta and votes are as welcome and appreciated. I am not very active here at the moment, the internet only works at the hotel and depends a lot on the number of guests.

This woodpecker is called Hoffman's woodpecker, Chris says Dustin also has a big nose! You might remember that in Malaysia I had found a banana squirrel, how much they share the same taste and pose Smile

Four lovely shots of this beautiful bird on an exotic (to us) flower, rather than a stick!

Four quite magnificent captures of this 'Banana Woodpecker' the colour of which are beautiful. I particularly like image number one, beautifully crisp and sharp. The clutter free backdrop allowing one to admire this fella without any unnecessary distractions Annette.

Another new species to me, Annette: four great shots of it, and perched on such (to my eyes) unusual plant.
