Nubian Woodpecker Gallery

Some of my best photographs from Tanzania were taken in the grounds around our tented camps, while I wasn't officially on safari. The more common birds of bush camps quickly become habituated to human presence, allowing such close approach that it's best for photographers to exchange their prime lenses in favor of a more versatile telephoto lens during the downtime between game drives. After lunch one day at Tarangire Safari Lodge, I stumbled upon this Nubian Woodpecker just outside of our tent and watched it from only two meters away as it probed deep into the recesses of a nearby tree.
