Green Woodpecker

Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis)

She's wreaked so much destruction that it's getting difficult for her to find any ants. She was reduced to digging in the front lawn today.
Lots of woodpeckers in the area recently. Yesterday a pair of Black Woodpeckers were mating in the garden oak tree while a Great Spotted Woodpecker tried to drive them off. I don't think they even noticed him.

L:)L. A lovely story. Lucky you. I never saw mating woodpeckers. A dream for every wildlife photographer. On many occasions did I not have my camera ready for shooting :confused:. Your woodpecker capture is amazing. Excellent detail and setting with a wonderful expression, like "You got me.". ;)
I recently posted a Black Woodpecker. I can only add, "The same destruction.". :giggle:

A real show-stopper Graham. Gorgeous low camera close-up of this magnificent woodpecker. Great focus, dof, colors, lighting, feather detail, eye contact, and setting. Exceptional!
