Woodpecker. (4)
Caleb (12)
Great spotted woodpecker. Taking off from the bird feeder in my garden. The feeder is an oak branch with holes drilled along its sides. The woodpeckers are happy searching food in cracks and holes and the model also protects the food from the greedy magpies.
Canon Mark II. ISO 6400; 1/3200; 5,6. Levels adjusted. Some noise due to the high ISO but not to disturbing in my opinion.
