A full frame capture of a Juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) making a very good job of emulating a Bittern with that head carriage - all that is missing is a reed bed background! Taken in the garden a couple of days ago.These youngsters are amazing to watch, as they spend relatively long periods immobile, as they scan their surroundings.

Many thanks for your support of my last upload - very much appreciated as always Smile

How wonderful to have these in the garden. I really like the neck stretched pose, with it looking like its spotted something interesting.

Good capture Sylvia.....
