A regular visitor of my backyard. Normally you can see this pretty bird close to the stem of the tree moving downwards. That's why we call it a "boomklever"in Dutch.

That is not a bad image Theo but it does need a little PP. I hope that you don't mind but here is one option. What I did: cropped a little of the bottom, adjusted levels and applied some local sharpening. I used Photoshop CC but there are many other programs that you can use to obtain the same results. BTW, working with the original file should greatly improve the results.

Thank you very much, Heinrich for your comments. The crop is an improvement and you are right in giving the photo more brightness. Thanks Theo
