Many thanks, Ulla

Fabulous image Mario!
Again, the sharpness is impeccable and the amount of detail is mind-blowing!
The thin red border is very good and brings out the little red patch on this guys head :)
Superb composition and POV.
Great lighting and colours.
Yet again... a perfect photo :D
Very well done,

This is a brillian capture of this Downy Woodpecker.
You were really close and the bird is seen so beautifully on this excellent composition.
A great light for this impeccable picture.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.

I'll bet you are trying to get as crisp and clear and CLOSE as you can without having to crop anything, have a nice pose and do it all right? Well you do it all the time...that's why you can't do it...:-) How self canceling is that?
This is a very nice looking bird. I do believe I have seen some of the like but where and what era of my life I don't know. Could have been one of our Quebec canoing trips in the early 1960's. Those were very fun....Quebec is a nice memory for me as an Boy Scout Explorer and Scout counselor. Anyway thanks for the memories..and apologies to Bob Hope

Hi, Mario, again.
Fantastic scene and brilliant shot. All is perfect. Especially I like precise exposure and reproduction of the white colour tones. Every white feather is reflected perfectly. It is refined work, which demands top skill. Bravo and my congratulations.
