Another garden shot of our "resident" male Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), showing off his plumage patterning. I would have preferred a less busy background, but they don't always perch where you want them to!
Settings: F/5.6 1/320sec ISO400 manual@500mm tripod

Many thanks for your great response to my Robin upload - really appreciated as always Smile

What a lovely pose of a great spotted woodpecker. We had them in our garden when we lived in the Carolinas.
Amazing detail and beauty.
