1/160, f6.3, ISO 1600, 530mm
Looking great in breeding plumage and with a nice clear background (what is that BG, it looks very even?)
Lovely close-up of a handsome bird, Stan
What a beauty Stan
same as the woodpeckers
Nicely taken Stan detail nicely picked up like it.
Very nice, could it be improved by adding some light to the dark face??
Healthy looking specimen Stan and a great take
might be able to get a little more detail from the black, I think the red is fine, but there is quite a reasonable catchlight in the eye
