I photographed this woodpecker this winter as it foraged in the trees along the Athabasca River in Jasper National Park. 
Nikon D500, 600VR, f 5.6, 1/500, 500 iso, full frame, tripod in a cold snowbank. Slight adjustments to basics in LR Classic.

She's just lovely on that frosty branch. A nice perky look and pose. You've captured the essence of a Downy.
