A near full frame capture (a little cropped from top to balance) of a wild young Male Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) taken in late evening sunshine, perching on a New Zealand Flax (Phormium tenax) flower in our garden in July.

I was blown away by your response to my last upload, Red in a Mist. My thanks to you all for your C&Cs with a special thank you to Pete, for the HC and to Mandy(MandyD) and Tom(Buffalo_Tom) for their User Awards. All really appreciated Smile
