December Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major)

By teocali
Still working from archives Sad A full frame capture of a male Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), taken in the garden at the beginning of December, in afternoon sunlight (a rare commodity to date!).

I was blown away by your response to yesterdays Blackbird upload - thank you everybody for your C&Cs, with a special thank you to Pete for the EC and to Adrian(tomcat), David(Craggwildlife), Dean(WindowonWildlife), Richard(MossyOak) and Brian (bricurtis) for their User Awards. Really appreciated and treasured Smile
