A good-looking woodpecker on a nice rustic perch, Frank. The rain saturates the colors beautifully. A lovely image with the new lens.

I think they chose the wrong name for this bird given its most diagnostic feature. Maybe "red-assed woodpecker"? Nice detail from your new lens (jealous me). If this were my image I would crop off the lower out of focus area since it doesn't add much to the overall picture (IMO).

Nicely done Frank. Crisp and as said by Ron, the rain provides a good depth to the tree
Make your life spectacular!
