Hello TrekNature friends, with this photo taken today
of the White-breasted Nuthatch I want you wish a
"Merry Christmas and Happy New Year".

This year was the year where I posted the least pictures
in TrekNature, only + or - 30, it is that I post my nature photos
also in 2 other places so we reduce the time devoted to TekNature,
but I have as a goal for next year to post at least one photo a week
for about + or - 50 photos per year.

1/2500s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm)


"The largest nuthatch, this is still a small bird with a large head
and almost no neck. The tail is very short, and the long,
narrow bill is straight or slightly upturned."

Hi Asbed,i'm happy to see you back for the Christmas wishes,so you still remember your old friends of TN...ehehe...and the pic is beautiful,no needs to read the name,your style is always unmstakable. I wish you all the best me too and thanks,Luciano.

Very interesting to see this bird, especially captured in flight. I have not seen this species here in the USA, so a new one for me. I hope you keep your New Year resolution and look forward to more of your pictures.

Hello Asbed,
A typical Asbed photo with a flying Nuthatch. Excellent quality in beautiful natural colours.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you too.

Hello Asbed,
What a lovely bird in flight....
"Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" to you too......

Ciao Asbed, fantastic inflight capture, perfect focus, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, Merry Christmas and Happy new year, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Asbed,

Le flou de l'arrière-plan indique le mouvement. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la Sittelle à poitrine blanche en vol. La bonne luminosité rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.

Bonjour Asbed,
Beautiful capture ..
Good sharp details and a nice composition.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas to you, Asbed!
This is a fabulous image of a Nuthatch in flight. The focus is spot on.

Hi Asbed,
Unique photo, sharpness is fine on the bird, but in my opinion the PoV could be a bit better and the nuthatch is too small in the frame. Thanks for your valuable contribution to TN and we all hope to see you more often here with new images.
Have a great Christmas, kind regards, László

Hi Asbed
Not easy this kind of photos. Great catch with the best dof and a sharp subject.
