Dendrocopos Major

By sparrowhawk
This was the only shot i got of this Male GSW as there were other people in the hide and they never switched the noises off on there cameras and he got spooked and never appeared the rest of the session i know the B/G is blown out around the top of his back but i never got another chance of a shot

Reckon you did really well in the circumstances. Good pose, nice details of the perch and most importantly, lovely colours and detail of the GSW itself!
