GSW - Ooops I dropped a bit!

By HobbitDave
Thanks kindly for all the c and cs on the Siskins yesterday. Here is male greater spotted woodpecker, looking down in v.1 after dropping a tasty piece. Lovely markings they have, as well as colours. The little bird in v2 is a Siskin, they are very cheeky and unphased by larger birds.
Its a cloudy wet day but hes not bothered, grub is grub for him!
v.3 is worked for brightness and contrast from the lead image.

All shots taken through glass on a very overcast day 🙂

The king of the bird feeders. As your images show the GSW rules the roost, great shot.

Think your garden birds are better than humans at sharing Dave. Lovely set again!

He still has plenty to go at there, even if he has dropped a bit!! A fine trio, Dave, think I have to go for V3 as my fave 🐦😃👍

Wonderful captures! I have 2 kinds of woodpeckers here but not this kind so it's nice to see one of their relatives. I'm impressed they can get the nuts out of those tiny openings.
