    Hiding at the edge of a meadow where I had seen green woodpeckers foraging before, I was so lucky to have a close encounter with this one :)

    One of the most beautiful creatures if you ask me. Perfect pose. I've had my share of hobby sightings a few days ago, no way of scoping these in flight!

    Half decent? Excellent! Impressive depth in this shot, ideal blurred habitat backdrop if you ask me.
