This morning I was taking some calm-inducing photographs around the estate. One of them, when loaded into Capture One Pro for post-processing, showed me that I had not been alone in my artistic effort. Rather a surprise … wonder if he got any good images too?
The Northern Flicker is taxonomically a woodpecker but its chosen food source is ant nests in grassland. Rather shy and nervous – usually seen flying away from you and flashing (flicking) it’s white rump.
