Woodpeckers hiding

This photo of a Black Woodpecker shows the bird in a typical, classic pose. When approached many woodpeckers (if they do not fly off) will simply move to the opposite side of the tree trunk to the observer. From here they will occasionally peep out and assess the situation. This shot was taken by Szabolcs Kokay at Tata, Hungary.
