GSW Portrait

By teocali
From the archives - a Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) portrait, taken against the background of a red Japanese acer shrub in our garden, last October. I was too close to get the whole of her in the frame!

Many thanks for your comments on my last upload and a special THANK YOU to Ray (Ray42) for the User Award - very much appreciated and highly valued Smile

That red acer must look splendid again now, Sylvia: a great backdrop it makes for the woodpecker portrait.
