**Woodpecker**

By Bob_V    
Sorry I haven't been on much in the last week, still getting things sorted out. Got this shot last week at work of this Acorn Woodpecker. There are two of them that hang out in the oak trees. Trying most of the afternoon for a good shot. This was the best of the bunch.
Thanks for all the C+C's on my previous upload, they are always appreciated.
Have a great day,
Bob

It's a superb image! Thought my eyese were playing tricks when I spotted the thumbnail on this little notebook I'm getting used to, but in fact that's a great presentation with the slightly angled framing.
