Great Spotted Woodpecker (dendrocopos major)

By teocali
This is a full frame capture of a Great Spotted Woodpecker(Dendrocopos major) who was clinging to the back of a piece of rotten wood below my feeder in the garden (the same perch the Great Tit in yesterday's upload was using). He was obviously finding something delicious to pull out of the wood (nothing put down by me). Please view large for detail if you have time.
Settings: F/5.6 1/1640sec ISO100 manual@500mm tripod

Thank you so much for your C&Cs on my last upload - greatly appreciated as always Smile

Large is well worth a visit Sylvia. Excellent focus on the head and eye with a very good catchlight. Cracking good perch I would think he could well return there.
