Hi everyone another woodpecker from the garden, i do think i have cropped this one a little bit to much.
This one and his mate come quite often now and we have seen them both on the log at the same time that would be the dream capture for me. Hope you like him and thankyou for all your congrats on my recent good news.
Thanks again everyone Shaun. Wink

A nice one Shaun but yes,I think you are right with the crop,just a little more room would have far more impact in the frame.
Colour & exposure are good.
