Brasil about 6years ago said: He is wonderful in his pose! so delicate photo, Cynthia ! : )
North Carolina about 6years ago said: Thanks all! It's a male Red-bellied Woodpecker so, yes, that tinge of red on his belly is typical. He's a funny guy to watch. When he alights on my platform feeder, the other birds give way as he uses that long pointed beak as a sword brandishing it at everyone. Too funny!
NNebraska about 6years ago said: Yes! It reminds me of when I spill strawberry jam on a white shirt ( I do that a lot). I've never noticed that about our woodpeckers, though. I don't know if that's typical or not. It does make the shot all the more charming! Brava again, Cynthia!
Australia about 6years ago said: A hairdo to be justly proud of. A little colour dripped on the belly, but it beautifully adds to the whole. Great moment.
Nebraska about 6years ago said: That's a fine looking Woodpecker, Cynthia. Nice shot!
