Now that is hard for me to believe that you actually got a nuthatch to do that...
They are so skittish around my feeders. They can be flying toward the feeder, ready to alight, but just a hint of my presence and they veer off immediately.
But, I see it, so my doubting eyes believe it...;-)
Very nice picture!
Excellent capture!
Thanks for sharing,

Talk about lucky, that is really good. think i will start to take bird food out with me in future. Great Idea great picture well done.


Hi Claude,
this is soooo cute, how have you managed that this bird comes on the hand?
Also excellent sharpness, a perfect shot, thanks

Great shot Claude. At first sight I thought the nuthatch was a stuffed bird because I would never dream of one of these to get that close to a human. But it looks very trustful in your hand (I suppose it is your hand). On the other hand I can not believe it would stay when you were moving around with a camera - so is it actually you holding it?

Great pose whicih goes well with the title. Very good colours and sharpness. Well blurred background setting the bird off nicely. Well done and keep on with the training. Who knows - may be the next shot will be an eagle;-).
