About Taken April 17/11, after a rain storm in the Rouge Valley near Toronto. After a rain storm is a good time to get shots of Woodpeckers. I think it's because the rain softens up the rotting wood so they don't have to work so hard to get to the insects for dinner.

Thank you so much again.
Yes, after rain is a great time to shot wildlife images. The birds like this one come out for the insects and are quite often busy hunting down food, so they don't fly away as easily as they do other times. This one is just a simple classic pose. I am trying as much as I can to shoot birds in interesting poses. But, when the light is good and the detail works out nicely, I'll take a standard pose anyday too.

as i said in my previous comment of the following photo of yours, one could easily sense the after rain overall atmosphere. just like here, and which would be ideal for the images of your kind.

i am enthralled by the details of the black wings, and that i can see divided lines between feathers/ i do not have to mention the rest.

warm regards and complements,

Thanks Riny,
I know it is just a standard, classic pose, but I really liked the background colour. And I got some decent detail in the bird too. So, I thought it was worth a post.
Thanks again.

Thanks Alessandro,
I'm glad you like it! I see you do a lot of wildlife images in Europe. It's good to see there are a few of us at this site who enjoy Wildlife photography.
