WOW! This turned out excellent! The colours of the Nuthatch and branch he is sitting on are perfect. I love the lichens on the branch, they add nice texture. AAA+++ Janice :)

Hi JeanPaul
Yes my friend, this is the real stuff. A much improved posting compared to the previous one. This is the quality I am used to see from you. Well done.
I like this shot very much. The composition and crop is well done. I fancy the branch that reaches all across the shot and the colourful lichen and moss ads to the atmosphere of the photo. The details are crisp and the exposure was well managed.
Great work and TFS.

Beautiful capture of Red breasted nuthatch JeanPaul.
Stunning colours and brilliant details.
The DOF was perfect and the BG and DOF are superb.

Hello JeanPaul,
tres jolie, I had to look twice to see what bird it is (it's not hanging upside down ;-).
Great colors and wonderful sharp details.

Very good shot! The details are really good as well as the framing and POV. You've captured the bird in a lovely pose.
I like it!

Hello Jean-Paul,
Interesting and nice bird; good details and framing, maybe BG not helps you very well in this occasion.

Great shot Jeanpaul! I like the wonderfull branch with beautiful colours and lichens (or what!) on that. I like the different framing here also! Thank you,
