    Joseph, this is AWESOME! Tack sharp and the colours are superb!

    Would you believe I thought of asking you whether you had a sequence of images from this sighting, only minutes ago? I was viewing your post in the Avian Forum and thought it would be great to see more!

    I am so pleased and so excited to see this, thank you so much for sharing. My favourite is frame no 2, there's something so cute and so special about the way the Woodpecker makes its exit from the nest:)

    I so appreciate this, many many thanks. Hope the other members visiting this Forum will enjoy it too

    Warmest regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Great series Joseph! This is a species I'd love to get better images of and you nailed some nice ones here. Love the flight shots - not easy to capture. TFS.
