The great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos major). As I was walking back to the car I heard it up in the trees. It sounded very annoyed with my presents but, even so I stopped to see what it was. With some carefully chosen words to myself for leaving the zoom lens in the car I stood there.

To my surprise it moved closer and closer down tree stem under much noise. As if it was yelling at me for being so close to the storage she had in the birch stem. I managed to get this picture with the 35mm macro lens.

There’s magic in the forest, ha de Gött!

  1. You did well to get this. They are difficult to spot sometimes, even when you can hear them! 🙂
