Red Bellied Woodpecker, Male
Probably would look better without the leaf.
P.S. This is what it looks like with the leaf removed.

This is beautiful. Is this natural? It almost looks like a flash.
A beauty... such details and colors, very well captured!
This is so interesting catch, and love the details!
Striking colour and details, I like the leaf too
I dunno, Kurt. I kinda like it with the leaf. It balances the composition and color a bit. The detail is fantastic on the woodpecker.
Btw, I have to tell my sensei about the rodeo shot, since he's Jim and he sees what's up on my screen from the living room. And I can throw him just as hard, well, almost as hard.
Incredible detail!! I like it with the leaf in it..looks fabulous!! This puts my woodpecker shot I got today to shame..not gonna post it now,lol!!!
Very cool colors, Kurt. Another great shot from you. I think the leaf makes the image complete. Lovely colors overall!
I liked it with the leaf. excellent!
The first thing that grabs my attention is the sharpness of the woodpecker, particularly the eye.....and then there is the feather detail.....
well done again!
Kurt, another of your stunning bird shots...lovethe light and the bg. Bird is soooo sharp.
