[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
another regular visitor at the hide was this woodpecker. We left some snacks for him at the back of this tree hoping he's make an appearance, and he did. In this shot you can actually see his tongue sticking out..yummy snacks


ps. This is dendrocopus major or greater spotted woodpecker. I had left out the name because many shot had come by recently showing this bird

Hi Jeroen,not easy to comment a fantastic perfection like that,just my best compliments for a top class capture whit the best sharpness and colors.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano.

Hello Jeroen.
Beautiful woodpecker with fine details. Love the sharpness and vivid plumage exposure in perfect shallow focus.

Hi Jeroen,

Excellant moment captured. Nice ploy too. What kind of snacks? Sounds fun.


Fantastic photo Jeroen! The composition, the BG, the colours and the sharpness are excellent!


A Picoides sp. I presume? Very nice ...amazing you were at "eye" level with him/her to capture such a superb POV. Well done indeed! Not much to critique.

Hello Jeroen,

This is an excellent shot of this handsome looking woodpecker. Interesting story and a nice way to lure him. Wonderfully composed with great details and sharpness...the lighting and DOF used is lovely.. TFS.


Great shot: very nice pose of the woodpecker with clear and sharp colours. Very well done

PS: this is the great spottet woodpecker

Hallo Jeroen,
Prachtige foto genomen vanuit een perfect standpunt. Leuk dat de specht ook terug kijkt. Zelden heb ik een foto gezien waar het scherpe klauwtje zo duidelijk op staat. Mooie natuurlijke kleuren en een uitstekende diepte in de foto.

Bonjour Jeroen,
Très belle publication finement détaillée et délicatement colorée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

hallo Jeroen
super compositie met veel details en mooie kleuren
groet lou

That's a truly beautiful pic, Jeroen!

In addition to the rest, it is nice to see those strong talons of the bird.
