Downy woodpecker

A little downy woodpecker all fluffed up.

Birds are amazing creatures, and I just love how they sometimes fluff themselves up to keep themselves warm when it’s cold out.

My main goal for this image was to try to capture the shadows and the black colour in its plumage, with the bright red contrast.

This image was based on a photo by the talented Tony Dvorak.
