Great Spotted Woodpecker - profile

By johnjo58
This handsome young lady turned up at the hide and presented her a lovely profile. I watched her checking our all the possible nooks and crannies for food, she was so systematical, a real privilege to watch.

Thans for all the support and interest on previous images, it is great to hear you views.

As always and C&C welcome, I would also encourage your feedback as to what would make my photography better. I am always looking to learn.
