We saw several species of woodpecker in Costa Rica. One afternoon, we were fascinated to observe and photograph a pair of Pale-Billed Woodpeckers, who, according to our guide, are usually difficult to see because of their skulking habits. Their hammering resounded and at times overtook the constant din of the cicadas. It was difficult to get both birds in the same frame because they stayed just far enough apart. I captured a few shots after I moved my camera rig back a few steps so I could see both at once in the viewfinder. I especially liked the one here because it shows both of them, eyes narrowed to avoid getting debris in them, and wood chips flying around their heads.
