That tongue looks like a pretty useful tool to get to the food items.

Really a great timing for this wonderful shot. It is always a pleasure to admire so many species of Woodpecker.

Classic pose - but quite unique to catch that probing tongue so extended, Axel!

Fun to see that tongue! I like the view of his red belly too- not seen so often. Nice one!

Between seeing the tongue and the red belly this otherwise classic woodpecker pose becomes a rather unique image.
