[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) is a bird species of the woodpecker family (Picidae). It is distributed throughout Europe and northern Asia, and usually resident year-round except in the colder parts of its range. It is not considered a threatened species by the IUCN, being widely distributed and quite common. A significant recent increase in the British population has been suggested as the cause of the recolonisation of Ireland.(Wikipedia)

Hello Sigi,
Nice photo of this Great Spotted Woodpecker in beautiful natural colours. Only the colour of the background is a bit strange. The details are not the best, but that's difficult with black and white feathers. Fine composition.

Hello Sigi,
superbe composition, le gros plan met en valeur des détails et les couleurs.
C'est bien fait

Hello Siegfried,
A nice pose from this lovely woodpecker. I like the way you present this woodpecker. Great point of view.

Hello Siegfried,

We don't have this beautiful Woodpecker with nice color. Quite well captured despite distance and little bit softness (may be due to handheld shot). I prefer to capture Woodpecker in vertical shape due to its body shape, tree shape and the way they move from down to up. But it's totally a personally choice and I respect it.
Thanks for sharing,
