    Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (Female), Everglades National Park, FL

    We were on our way back to the parking lot when I spotted a woodpecker high up in a tree. It was very busy working away on the tree trunk. I couldn't really make out what it was, so after switching lenses I walked back to the tree and lo and behold it was still there.

      Wow - I'm always impressed at their persistence. If I banged my head into a tree all day, I'd have some pretty bad headaches!

      Great shot, Claudia! I can never see a woodpecker without thinking of the cartoon character's song :)

      wirklich stimmungsvolle Tieraufnahme, der Specht in Fromaltfüllender Grösse, die warmen Töne von der Baumrinde im Vordergrund und der frische Hintergrund.
