Our Green Woodpecker was back

The first shot was taken through the windows. Always take a quick one in case they fly off. The colour balance seems a bit off compared with the others.



I then moved carefully outdoors but found it walking up the garden away from me. A jaunty little step I think.



This looks a nice place.



Tasty food they've left out.



I know, I'll do something unexpected. Lift off.



The E-M5 (well me really) struggles to focus on these this fast moving shots. This is the best I could do.. and you don't get a second chance.



I'll hide here and then sneak away. I love hiding behind the branches; it makes it so difficult to be papped.

You should be working for a tabloid nicely illustrated tale.

John, we are lucky to see both green and spotted woodpeckers in our (suburban) garden. They live in some nearby woods and in the mornings you can often hear the distictive peck.
