Woodpecker artwork: Lesser Spotted Woodpecker

In an earlier post on this blog I highlighted the art of wildlife artist Szabolcs Kokay from Budapest, Hungary. In my opinion Szabolcs is one of the very best artists when it comes to capturing woodpeckers, whether it be in oils, watercolours or just pencil. This wonderful painting of a pair of Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers Dendrocopos minor in riverine habitat in Hungary, is yet another fine example of the artist's ability at capturing woodpeckers that are not only accurate plumage-wise but also shown in the correct habitat and behaviour context.
