I got really lucky with the pose and light angle, and slightly diffused light. These woodpeckers are not only fun to watch, but it's also interesting to see that they deliver a fairly balanced diet to the chicks. Some kind of nut in this case, they also bring insects and berries, must be the woodpecker version of the Mediterranean diet. :)

A truly amazing incoming flight shot. The food item in the beak adds to it.
