Hello friends.

The White-breasted Nuthatch.

1/3200s f/8.0 ISO1000 50mm (35mm eq:75mm)
in the exifs I put 1/3000s because
in TN's database there is not 1/3200s.

from Seattle Audubon Society website

« Like other nuthatches, the White-breasted
uses its strong legs and claws to walk up, down,
and sideways on tree trunks, probing in the bark
crevices for food. They readily come to seed and
suet feeders and cache food in crevices to return
to later. White-breasted Nuthatches respond readily
to imitated Pygmy-Owl calls. »

Hell Asbed,

Beautiful, animated composition of this nuthatch in flight. Rare to see these birds away from their prototypical upside down position .... but you've found this one enroute and captured very well in and beautiful light. Well taken, well timed!

Bonjour Asbed,
Il doit se prendre pour un ange, cet oiseau! Le focus était parfait, la lumière plutôt difficile. Mais une image spéciale, signée Asbed.

Hello Asbed,
An amazing capture! Looks like the nuthatch was chasing an insect. Superb sharpness and lighting that catches the white breast perfectly against the blue sky.
Thanks and best regards,

Bonjour Asbed,

L'oiseau est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la Sitelle à poitrine blanche. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
