I like the pose and perch. Excellent background. Wonderful detail on the woodpecker. You do have a bit of a sharpening halo around the black and red plumage.

Problems with sharpening sometimes being the odd pixel that is include or not seen, LOL.

Dave, remarkable color on this handsome woodpecker. Lovely detail throughout, and the background is simply “killer.” Great job!

A real beauty, Dave- love the branch and the brilliant colors on the WP. As Ron mentioned, the background is such a nice complementary color. Super shot!
