Red-bellied Woodpecker, male

I was happily surprised when this woodpecker flew into the backyard set up today with me sitting only sixteen feet away.

Dead center light, nice set up. Beautiful Woodpecker.

Great setting Allen, nice and sharp, I like the catch light in the eyes.

Sweet images, Allen, particularly the second. Excellent detail and very nice light with good head turns and poses.

Like the others have said, Allen. Wonderful photos, expertly seen, captured and executed.

How nice to have this show up in your yard set up. You must live near a wooded area. The colors are superb and I like the environmental setting. Your perch set up looks like it works well.

Really pretty birds. Both poses are very nice and bird looks nice and relaxed. Pretty nice to have them in your back yard. Good for you.

Like these shots Allen, especially the sharpness and detail along with a great perch. The heavier limb perch looks more realistic.
