Ome of the best woodpecker shots, really standing out for me as the subject stands out from the b/g so eye catchingly.

something is bothering me slightly with the wing area, nit picking really as the pose is one of the best I have ever seen on epz and with a superbly sharp eye makes this shot rather special

Superb timing and detailed capture Sylvia. Exposed very well and an outstandingly detailed eye. Love the way you have exposed for the bird and have it set out against a well thought out neutral bg
