Default a very pretty sapsucker

got these shots of a red-breasted sapsucker at my favorite park today... probably the prettiest, most colorful shots i've ever gotten of one of these birds. between the light, the background and surroundings, and the bird's own color, these images made my day! it was like he hopped up this willow branch into an open spot and posed for me, then after i'd taken a couple of shots, he flew off. these have had zero processing aside from resizing and a bit of sharpening... 7DII, 600mm, 1/1600 @ f/8...

I like this angle of the sapsucker too, normally one would only see them from behind...

thanks! i have plenty of shots of them in profile, but catching them face-on like this is unusual...especially out in the open!
