[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The European Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis) is a member of the woodpecker family Picidae. There are four subspecies and it occurs in most parts of Europe and in western Asia. All have green upperparts, paler yellowish underparts, a red crown and moustachial stripe which has a red centre in males but is all black in females.
The European Green Woodpecker spends much of its time feeding on ants on the ground and does not often 'drum' on trees like other woodpecker species. It is a shy bird but usually draws attention with its loud calls. A nest hole is excavated in a tree; four to six eggs are laid which hatch after 19–20 days.

Hello Joska,
Nice capture!

Hi, Jozsef
Very nice, almost monochrome colours here, and the sharpness and depth of field are just perfect. The only change I would have made would be to make the building in the background unrecognizable by blurring and blending its outline. A very fine shot, though - with the subtle natural colours carefully preserved.
Regards, Nigel.

Hello Joska,
Very nice photo of this Green Woopecker. Beautiful soft colours and good sharpness. Excellent well balanced composition.

Slut Joska,
Mare noroc sa intalnesti aceasta specie pe care eu o caut de mult dar fara succes.
Detaliile si culorile sunt de nota 10.
Pot recunoaste obiectivul caci are o semnatura aparte.....este departe de Sigma.....
Numai bine!
