This adult Greater Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos Major) was taken in the garden of a friend of mine in Hampshire in the UK. There are woods close by where the birds live and after 8 months of trying to lure them into the garden to feed, she succeeded. There are small holes in the trunk of the Silver Birch that have food in them just out of sight of the camera. This entices the Woodpeckers to stay for a few minutes at a time while extracting all the food allowing for excellent photo opportunity. This was taken from a small hide set up about 15 feet from the birds.
Kit: Canon EOS 1Div EF 300 f/2.8 1/2000 sec @ F/5.6
