[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Classic Pose for the nuthatch. I have seen several posts with the nuthatch holding this pose that I considered starting a theme just for the nuthatch's classic pose. Greg's picture inspired me to look for one of mine in the similar pose...;-)
I just recently bought a hanging birdbath which you see above his head. And, he is on my pine suet log where you can see one of the drilled holes filled with suet.
I'm still hoping the Red-bellied Woodpecker will allow me a shot on the suet log someday.
Thanks for looking,

A very good one Dave, it's a classic pose but a good one with the hangin' bath just over it's head. I like the twinkle in it's eye. Good work ! Thanks,


PS I did a little workshop on it just to see, hope you like it.

Hi Dave. Classic pose, you're right. Moreover, I like the hanging thing on the left that balance very well the composition.
I also feel like is a bit dull in contrast and colours. I did a WS too.

Regards, Petru

Hi David!

Many thanks!!! Great bird and you're right - classic pose. Your specie is slightly different - more dark in colours, but I bet also very dynamic and hard to capture! These birds are one of my favourites, small, active and sounds very good. Also - very good WS!
Best regards,

A strange pose, I must say. Nice and sharp where it matters. And well caught. TFS

Hi Dave
Another good one.
Like it a lot.
Good composition. Very different.
Thank You and Regards

Hello Dave,

Another idea would be to have a silhouette theme of the various types of birds, it is amazing how much we have all learned in regards to identifying species this way.

Great job on this lovely pose, a little dark for my taste, however, well captured and composed.

Petru's ws helps.

Thank you for sharing it.

Nice shot Dave. You have very good sharpness and DOF in your subject. As Anna Lu has said, and I quote "a little dark for my tastes" is something I will have to borrow here. I did a workshop I will post tommorrow. TFS!

Hi Dave,
The overall composition on this looks excellent. I know you shoot these thru a window. Is it heavily tinted? Thats what the darkness of the photo looks like to me. Your recent outside shots do not have the dark look that the bird shots have. I love the pose, and the detail is excellent.

David, you keep on dealing with hard conditions.

A very nice pose, great pov as usual.

Lovely catchlight and details.

Love this little fellow's pose that you captured very well.
