A very colourful character against a clear blue sky.

This male Greater Spotted Woodpecker popped up in a nearby tree and posed for some time giving good eye contact before flying away.

I have seen and taken images of many GSW's in my time, I think that this is one of the best in so far as composition is concerned.


  1. Great shot John. Are they starting to get vocal and active around your way?

  2. Hi Douglas, yes, a bit of drumming going on.
