Pica Pau Verde, European green woodpecker,

(Picus Viridis)

This one is the second pic of this beautiful species.
Another perspective,another pose...
This species of woodpecker use to nest in the same place. An advantage to spot and get an appropriate environment and shoot from a shelter. With the help of some caterpillars sooner or later it appears. Curiously the nest owner can change... but they still around.

More info about the species please see:

Hope You enjoy as much I enjoy my first meeting with this species.

Have a good day and thanks for looking...

Hello Jose,
Fantastic picture of this well detailed woodpecker. Attractive pose, beautiful colours and taken from the best POV. A pity that the background is a bit noisy.
