Dear TL friends, there are 2 spotted great woodpeckers, visiting us all day long, because they know that there is always feed in the feeder. So I made this portrait of one of them one day.Captured through the kitchen window. I cropped and resized for TL.
Thank you for your visit and for your critics.

Guten Tag Rose

Superb graphism & sharpness & the tilt adds dynamism & tension. I like the reflection in the woodpeckers eye. The soft pastel colors in the oof bg are marvellous. Tfs!

Nice photo!
You must have been far away from it.
But you made a really nice portrait of it.
I like the colours and the unsharpened background. Now we're not distracted by the backround.

Hi Rose, an excellent close up portrait of the woodpecker - so sharp - you have the feeling one can touch him.thanks for sharing - herzliche Gruesse Monika

Lovely.
I like those crumbs on its beak.
Its angle is funny. Hope it didn't fall!

Ciao Rose, great portrait of lovely woodpeacker in nice pose, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

A lovely closeup capture from a cute woodpecker, Rose!

Amazing details and well caught bright spot in its eye.
Colors are natural and clarity is nice too.
An elegant white bordered frame enhances the overall appeal of the scene.

Well done!

Viele Liebe Grüße

Hi Rose.

Superb detail of a bird i assume that is not easy to capture the way you have with such good clarity of detail and colours. The red tuft on his head stands out well, so does the tones and patterns. A nice simple frame fits this perfectly, well seen and taken Rose. TFS
