Margot, thanks for your visit and nice words. Hope you are well these days.

domingo verdu, Gracias. Me alegro de que al igual que mi primer intento de fusionar diferentes poses de un mismo animal. Fue muy divertido de hacer.

Cool! Boy you are really getting the most out of your camera. I am lucky to get one usable shot of woodpeckers....and you have a whole series.

Great one Jean, very good idea to bring all that in one picture - I like woodpeckers, don't ask me why, I saw some of yours in Ontario, too. Ours are not that colorfull and rather a bit smaller.

Joy, this was fun. The photo stitch is super easy... YOU"VE GOT TO TRY IT!! Take 2 photos, overlapping just a bit. Then turn on the photostitch and you have the image stitched in about a minute... if you are slow. :))

leon, we have three different sizes of woodpeckers here in my neck of the woods. This one is the big one. I love the sounds they make. You can hear them by clicking on these blue words.


Beautiful photo!!!Great work, Jean!!!

greetings Marisa♥

Hi Jean - nice! You're so lucky to have not just seen one, but to have gotten these great shots!

leon on May 20, 2010

Great - Great - Great, dear Jean!!!

Thanks an awfull lot for the site above!!! You're right, they make funny noises. Our largest ones are Schwarzspecht and Grünspecht (German wikipedia, nice pics!) - well, as I now looked at them again, I would say they are also not realy "boring".

Schwarzspecht-Wikipedia-Site leads to spechte-online.de where you can download (and then liste to) the noises of all european woodpeckers - must be great, but I didn't try yet, because you need Real-Player and I havn't time installing it ... I'm off for an eight hundred kilometers-journey by car => :-))

See you.

Marisa♥, thank you very much. Usually, this bird does not stay long upon the ground and very illusive even when in the trees. He flies pretty fast when he zooms by so it is usually difficult to get a photo. I was very lucky.

kamalyn, Yes, I had them line up for me and tried to get them to synchronize their moves but they were a bit testy. ;))

leon, Thank you for that link! I have tried to get it to work but am having difficulties and my computer even already has the Real-Player installed. It is fun to have the page translate anyway... I appreciate seeing it! Hope you are having a great trip... SAFE TRAVELS and happy snapping!

Unique and very beautiful! Greetings from Lithuania! G.

~jean~ on June 6, 2010

Gintarele, thank you. I was so surprised to be able to take several photos of this bird on the ground who is usually always in a tree! It was fun to explore my new camera's software and play with the stitching feature!

this is a cracker! i get excited when i see in forest our great spotted one... while ago i read about american woodpeckers, apparantly quite a lot of them are dissapiering. its nice to see that not all of them :)

~jean~ on June 6, 2010

Unda J, Here is some astonishingly good news: there is one that was thought to be extinct but in recent years, it is comfirmed that the Ivory-billed Woodpecker lives!!!... they have discovered it in Arkansas. This Pileated Woodpecker is the largest of the woodpeckers that live here in my neck of the woods. I love to hear his cackling call when he zooms by or when he is hammering at a tree.

Unda J. on June 6, 2010

thats really are good news then. im glad to know that!

~jean~ on June 13, 2010

Unda J., The Ivory-billed Woodpecker lives. I'd love for them to do so well that they live here in my neck of the woods again. Or at least get plentiful enough for me to go to Arkansas and actually see one. :)
