The summer months are the most challenging for wildlife photography in Greece. The extreme heat and the harsh light, make things quite difficult. I have come to the conclusion that the best habitats for nature photography during this period are forests and especially the forests located high on the mountains. In this environment the temperature is not too high and the shadows under the trees help to avoid the harsh summer light despite the high ISO that has to be used.

This summer I have managed to go for 2-3 short excursions in the forests of Giona. I managed to get pictures of several forest species like Woodpeckers, Tits, Nuthatches, Treecreepers and more. This photo of a Black Woodpecker is just an example.

Don’t forget that you can always see the pictures in larger/sharper versions together with the Exif Data just by clicking on them.
