I recently spotted this Northern Flicker (a kind of woodpecker) near my house – had never seen one before. The reference is poor because it’s zoomed in and cropped – but I had several photos to use as supplementary reference.
Really enjoyed all the planes and surface patterns.
I’m not sure that the image “reads” properly though. The bird is looking back at me, over his shoulder, but I can’t tell if that really comes across.
Thanks for taking a look.
