Hi everybody!
To give a brake with Odonatas, today I'd like to show you my good luck with a macro 105mm, since I don't have special lens to take birds photos.
Unfortunately I don't know the ID, but I'm sure that you can help me.
I hope you like it and I wish you a nice day.

Atualization
I'm thankful about our friend Nigel Deacon that gives me this bird ID.
White-wedged Piculet Picumnus albosquamatus, a tiny member of the woodpecker family. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, and Paraguay.
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, and dry savanna. (and of course, also in my backyard where I found it.)

Hi Francisco,
this is a superb shot of a bird. The pattern is well seen in good colours and contrast.
You have composed it very beautifully and the graphical effect of the branch also give a splendid scene.
Well presented shot.


Regards,
Foozi

Hello Fransisco,
A very fine capture of this beautiful spotted Woodpecker that I hope somone will be able to identify! Great focus on the eye and its red hat and a beautiful coposition.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Ciao Francisco,
a splendid capture of this very beautiful bird (i think about the ID that this one is a bird of Picidae family, but i can not help you for the species), superb sharpness and marvellous colours.
TFS
Best regards
Ciao Maurizio

hello Francisco
great sharpness picture with great details and beautiful colours
i think it is a BABY Woodpecker no id witch one
greeting lou

Hi Francisco.
You have use your great macro lens perfectly. Amazing subject of the image and composition of a shot. Flash light is superb and was needed in such satiation. Details and sharpness across the frame is excellent too. It is great success. My compliments and best wishes.
Alexei.

Francisco:
This is a very fine image of a White-wedged Piculet Picumnus albosquamatus, a tiny member of the woodpecker family. I might have shifted the composition a little, but this is quite an achievement and, I am fairly certain, a first appearance on TN for this species.
Thanks for posting this - it was a good exercise in bird ID.
Regards, Nigel.

Olá Francisco,
ISO 400, 105mm and flash for a bird in a branch! wow! very good! is a picture that must be hard to do, but to you has been well taken! congratulations, it's an interesting way to make a break in series of odonates!
Unfortunately, I do not know the ID. Here in Venezuela I have not seen this nice bird.

Hello Francisco,
I've checked the ID and yes, Nigel has right, this is the White-edged Piculet. One of the 13 piculet species in your country. Till now I've only seen a female of this species and now you show us the male. Great sharp-detailed photo in very beautiful natural colours. Thanks for this excellent photo.
Regards,
Peter
