[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) is rather common in our country.
It is an inhabitant of woodlands and parks, depending for food and nesting sites upon old trees. Its actions are jerky, and it hops rather than climbs, leaping forward with one foot just in advance of the other. When a space is crossed the flight is easy and undulating.

Hello Pierre,
Although there were so many obstacles, but you have captured this Woodpecker quite well. I like its composition as well as BG. Like the way you have given more place where it is looking. Color and details are beautiful too.
