Woodpecker on a Roller !

By teocali
A juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), perching on the rusty handle of an old grass roller in our garden, against a background of ornamental willow Spring foliage. There is some cobweb detail between the lower struts of the roller.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterday's upload with a special thank you to Trev (Trev_B) for his User Award - made my day, Trev - very much appreciated Smile
