Green Woodpecker

The first Green Woodpecker that I have got a half decent photo of. One of a family of 4 woodpeckers feeding on a school playing field. I could not get close as there was no cover around, so this is from about 200′ away using a long lens.

CV-22B Osprey in hover mode.

I really do like this aircraft, it is so good to watch and a real triumph in design. Normal landings, rather than the hover type landings,  do look fun though with those engines having to be tilted upwards slightly so that the large propellers don’t hit the ground.
