My Nemesis....

For many years i have been trying to get a decent shot of a Great-spotted Woodpecker and have failed at most attempts...
My good friend and fellow nature photographer Bart Stornebrink had a garden at the edge of some woodland and had invited me to photograph his regularly visiting Great-spotted Woodpecker several times but i have only got a snapshot of it just before Bart moved house..

Lucky for me Bart moved to an even better place in the woods and has made another set-up where he has diverse birds coming in for lunch amongst wich the elusive Great-spotted Woodpecker. This time i came prepared and had a vision of how to photograph the Woodpecker and if it would land on the perch i would be ready for it...
After just an hour and many Blue Tits, Great Tits and Nuthatches there he was landing right where i wanted him! And....finally..i got the shot i was after!

We had a blast with about 20 visiting species today so perhaps i will post some of them later on.
For some of Bart's work have a look here: http://www.bartfotografie.eu
