Female Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major)

By teocali
A young female Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) taken in our garden last week, in late afternoon light, against the red Acer foliage background. Surprisingly the foliage is still hanging on despite the recent windy weather.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterday's upload - much appreciated as always Smile

Absolutely top drawer Sylvia, the detail, colours and clarity in the plumage are sublime and another background to die for
