Woodland Woodpecker

The Great Spotted Woodpecker
The Great Spotted Woodpecker has a black head, and a black bar separates the white patch on the neck.
This is the first time I have ever seen a Woodpecker feeding with any bird.The conspicuous red rump always gets my attention, and I grap my camera and take the photos through the patio window, but the quality is poor.  
The Juvenile has red crown
The peanuts lure the Woodpeckers to my garden, but the swinging motion on the feeder, is a bit of a problem!!
I will be taking a short break as from next week.

Blue Bijou

Lang's Short.Tailed Bue
Leptotes pirithous (Lycaenidae)
Lang's Short.tailed Bue Butterfly rarely reveals it's upper wings, which are mainly in the male, and more brown in the female. The barred underwings are marked by two colourful eyespots, and a long tail.It favours flower rich grassland.
The Lang's Short.tailed Blue is a powerful flier, and strong migrant.It's migrantory habits allow it to reach almost anywhere
within it's range.Common and widespread in the south of it's range, scarce further north.I have seen hundreds here this year.
