My contribution to the Squares and Circles A Photo a Week Challenge.

A leucistic juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker feeding on a square suet feeder made of square mesh. Leucistic means that the bird lacks dark pigmentation, what should be black is light brown on this bird. The shot was published in a magazinea decade or so ago.
