Wow! What a fantastic woodpecker. It looks do delicate to me... Colors are amazing and you managed very well your pov in order to get this nice profile and bg. The only thing is that the white appears tio me burned on the lower right corner (price to pay to get the white on the bird perfectly exposed). Here, using the clone stamp tool within Photoshop, I would have clone the burn patches by correct exposed lark.
Bye and TFS,
What a fantastic bird.Nice work.
