Hello Luis,
What a beautiful looking woodpecker you have presented to us. Looks like it is fairly large, almost like our pileated woodpeckers here in Ohio. The focus is tac sharp allowing us to view it's pretty plumage and unique features in fine detail. Love it's large well defined eyes and it's ivory colored beak. Very good exposure and nice DOF.

Hola Luis! Amazing bird. Wonderful scene and scenery. Fine background. Superb exposure. Good sharpness and focus. Well done!

Bonjour Luis,
What a beautiful bird, how well taken in its natural habitat. A very fine picture.

Bonjour Luis,
Une bonne profondeur de champ, mais surtout une magnifique lumière qui fait resplendir de splendides couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
