(Redirected from Dendrocopos major)

The Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) is a member of the woodpecker family, Picidae.
It is distributed throughout Europe and northern Asia. It is largely resident except in the colder regions of its range.

It is an inhabitant of woodlands and parks, depending for food and nesting sites upon old trees. It is often an inconspicuous bird, in spite of the plumage. The large white shoulder patch is a feature that catches the eye.

Buna Jozsef,

Cicanitoarea din fotografia ta este foarte bine redata. Lumina ce cade din partea opusa privitorului creaza o interesanta aureola in jurul capului. De asemenea redarea culorilor este foarte bine realizata, penele rosii dand mai multa viata imaginii.

TFS si toate cele bune,

Hello Szabo,
Wonderful close photo of this Woodpecker. A pity that there's some noise in the BG. So I made a workshop, also to get a better DOF. I hope you like it.
The colours, POV, sharpness and composition are excellent.

Megint egy csodálatos harkály közeli, az ismert helyszínről. Gratulálok!
