A full frame capture of a male Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) against a fiery red backdrop of Autumn acer foliage. The shrub has now lost patches of foliage, thus changing the textures of the background.

Many thanks for your support of my last upload, with a special thank you to Dave(WhiteRose1) for the GEA and to Annette (annettep38) and Malcolm (M-squared) for their User Awards - all very much appreciated and valued Smile

almost lost in the fire of the b/g but such a beautiful shot, I would even settle for the sunset appearance alone but remember its the Acer causing the redSmile
