Red-Bellied Woodpecker

This is a Red-Bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus).  This isn’t the best photograph.  It was taken in the rain.  But normally you get photos of them from the side and rarely get a shot of them straight behind.  So I thought I would include it because it is nice to see the feather pattern from behind.
