What is it doing there? Does it want to call another woodpecker? Does it want to listen to my calls? I really do not know. ;-)

Hello Peter,
perhaps it`s called phone tapping!
Nice light and details.

Hi Peter,
Well taken this bird, nice light capture and colors for the bird and also good dark and blurry Bg, tfs.

Hej Peter,
Det måste vara trevligare att bli avlyssnad av en hackspett än av Säpo eller NSA. Det är en vacker fågel och bilden gynnas av att du fick med så mycket av omgivningen. Jag hoppas att hackspetten inte tänker leta efter insekter i starkströmsledningen.

Hi Peter,
Well observed and taken scene with an excellent sense of the moment! Very well done and composed view. TFS!


Good evening Peter,
How I would love to catch a woodpecker on camera, and under such a favorable daylight that show its red and grey/brown colors.
Most woodpeckers come to Israel in winter, hiding within the green leaves (In israel winter is like your summer), and had one caught once.
Beautiful bird, lovely taken picture, great technical details.
My best regards, and thanks for the note written on mine.

So funny Peter, beautiful picture of nature.., excellent vertical shot with a good sharpness, all the best, I never forget you, warm regards

Hallo, Peter,
Funny note for this amazing shot! Well, perhaps he is a part of some secret service system.;)
I've read about this bird, he has got a special construction of the head.
Excellent quality for a scanned photo.
Best wishes,

  • Great
