A female Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) enjoying finding grubs in a rotten tree stump in our garden. A lot of high speed head banging was going on, so I was lucky to catch an image with the wood splinters flying.

Many thanks for your support of my last upload - always appreciated Smile

Quite a sight and sound display when you can catch them head banging (how their skulls cope I don't know), Sylvia: fine capture indeed.

You should have shot it through glass Sylvia and then softened it, far too much detail and alround quality to get the votes Wink
