Grey and Buff Woodpecker (Male)
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Grey and Buff Woodpecker (Hemicircus concretus)|
This little woodpecker approximately 14 cm in height came out to play after a passing shower. This species is normally sighted at treetop levels.
At the Sepilok Rainforest Discovery Centre in Sandakan, Sabah, Malaysia I was on a canopy walk that allowed for that and to get nearer to observe the birds.
Their movements are rather quick and erratic. Fortunately I managed to get this shot despite the slower shutter speed.
