I like the vibrant color with the “Expresso Look.” The debris in the air behind the Flicker adds an element of action to the image. I can not get Flickers to come to suet. What is your secret?

Very colorful-nicely enhanced to see the beautiful feather details and striking red marking. I like the flying bits too-it reminds me of how much of my suet ends up on the ground! (Makes my squirrels happy...). Just a thought-this might also look great with the red roof(?) cropped out so the bird gets ALL the attention. :).
I've never has a Flicker at my suet either, Ron.....

I love flickers, this is a good looking one. Their colors are pretty punchy as is so might (personally) back off any additional enhancement (Espresso Look) of color for a more subdued look. Looks like you may have an opportunity here to provide some natural perches and backgrounds to take the feeder shots to the next level. I started my bird photography with feeder settings and loved the experience!

Thanks Ron! This is first flicker I've seen this year.
Thanks Cynthia! Yep, squirrels and raccoons help clean up ground.
Thanks David!
Thanks Gary!
