Two beautiful ladies looking for a partner

This is a photo of two great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopus Major).

It had been fantastic if I could make a photo of these birds a little bit nearer but I am glad I got any photo at all, especially since they are sitting next to each other looking the other way.

When I found this pair my immediate thought was that it indeed was a pair but I think it is actually two female woodpeckers. The male is supposed to have a red patch on their head but I think these two birds don't have that. So the conclusion here could be that these two good looking ladies are looking for males!

I made this photo on 29 February 2012.

I was born 1967 in Stockholm, Sweden. I grew up in the small village Vågdalen in north Sweden. 1989 I moved to Umeå to study Computer Science at University of Umeå. 1995 I moved to the Netherlands where I live in Almere not far from Amsterdam.

Here on this site I let you see my creations.
