Nice one, is that a female or is the red on the lower beak the sun shining through?

Thanks Lester I think its a female the sun was behind her (could be a juvenile )

Love this one! Rain adds a lot to the overall feel, plus just a beautiful creature captured.

I have a dead tree in my garden that the woodpeckers visit quite often, only about 6 or 7 meters from the house....took this shot from the comfort of my living room :-)
