Usually nothing good comes of things rustling in the bushes. It's a well known locale of lions, tigers, bears, solicitors, politicians and photographers. Any of which can be dreadful to encounter in the underbrush. So that pretty much explains why I was there, being a member of at least one of those groups.

Enjoy and your comments welcomed.

Awesome presentation of the wood pecker, Wendell. Love the colors and the lighting. Also, I love the angle of the shot. Kudos.

Woodpecker looks good against that colorful background Wendell. If the focus was good enough you could have shown it a little bigger. Nice lighting too.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Wonderful capture of this cute little woodpecker, Wendell. I like the fall leaves around, especially those little guys just above the bird that are in focus.

I don't see this one in the contest (maybe not just yet) but it is very apparent that the woodpecker has picked it to win!!! Best wishes. ~~ John
