Today we had quite a lot of snow so I got out with the camera and took a few, this lovely Green Woodpecker graced us with its presence.

Thanks for all the attention on the Robin photo, always appreciated.

Please feel free to click, comment and critique

Lucky you. I find that these are the most difficult bird to spot let alone capture.

Very well done venturing out in today's conditions but so worth while when a subject as good as this shows up: excellent shot of this woodpecker, not seen so often on site here, David.

Not only a rare green woodpecker (in my part of the world anyway), but in snow too. Wonderful.

A stunning capture, I've yet to get close enough to these beautiful birds to get a descent shot myself.
Great work.
