This is a Red-bellied Woodpecker and one of my all time favorite Woodpeckers. They are a medium sized bird with a fairly long bill, short wings, and a heavy tan colored body. I find them very easy to zero in on because they are usually chattering up a storm and make their presence known.

I just got back from a week long trip to the Gulf Coast in Central Florida where the birding was incerdible. All my friends( birds) from the Spring and Summer have flown down south now and are presently resting and filling up with food in Central Florida. I guess I'll have to tell my parents that I will be down for Thanksgiving week again next year...just to good to pass up!

Great shot Lesley.
Very good light , colours, composition and great sharpness with good details.
Excellent work.

Lesley, mthis is a marvelous shot with excellent clarity and good colours. Nice composition. Well done

This is wonderful, Lesley. Not only technically perfect, but with a fantastic light. It could be a paiting, where the painter has put the maximum of his art to produce a perfect picture. A dreamshot for me, and a favorite.

It's a beauty Lesley. this one stands out amongst the rest. The colours sharpness and composition is perfect. What a masterpiece.

Excellent shot Lesley !

Nice composition,very nice color.

Great shot! You've captured this one very well, your exposure is on the nail, and I really love the catchlight in ?his eye! The only slight flaw is the twig over his shoulder, but it's really only a marginal nit. Excellent capture :-D

Great shot Lesley, great colors.
Wonderful straight in my favorites.

Excellent photo, Lesley. The colours, details and composition are great, what more can I say :)

Ahh Lesley, another excellent capture. the pose is excellent and the level of detailed plumage is very good. I like the OOF background, emphasising the birds' beauty. A favourite.

Hi Lesley
You sure posted some excellent beauties while I was away, I would comment on each one if it was possible. This one is one of my favourites, do you have a picture of the red on the belly - I believe it is nearly impossible to see or shoot. These are beautiful birds and your rendition is great.

Another great one - unlike you, I have had a real problem getting a decent shot of these, even tough they are quite common in my back yard. But they're also very shy.

Hello Lesley, Wonderful capture! I didn't realize you had posted this one until you told me. Of course I like mine better! But then, I'm just a bit prejudiced of course! ;-)

Another great picture Lesley, you are a very skilled nature photographer.
There are some wonderful birds in America and I am glad that you are able to share them with us.
Great clarity, colours and note.
Well done!

The light and the colors are very fine! Well done!

Could this be any better? I don't think so. You've done an excellent job with a fine looking bird. The light is just right, the DOF and the exposure are just right. Well done!

Real nice picture Lesley. Light, pose and background are perfect. And of course, another beautiful bird in your collection.
