Salut Pat,
Elle est superbe cette Sitelle! J'aime beaucoup la composition et l'angle de la caméra! Les couleurs sont éclatantes et les détails très précis. Je me demande qu'elles sont les différences entre elles et nos Sitelles à poitrines rousse, elles se ressemblent tellement. Bravo pour cette belle image,
Claudine

Bonsoir Pat, quelles couleurs impressionnantes et quelle netteté, wow! Je suis bouche bée, c'est tellement beau. Cette petite sittelle ressemble étrangement à nos sittelles, elle serait une femelle. Le mâle a le crâne noir. Très très belle photo, merci!

Francine

Excellent shot of this Nuthatch Pat!
It's a shame about the un-natural surroundings but technically this photo is perfect!
Very detailed with good sharpness.
Nice colours and lighting.
Well composed.
Great work.
Cheers,
Joe

bonjour pat
eh bien je me demandais ou pouvait bien etre passer la sitelle qui venait me voir,elle est partie en belgique!!!!
dommage qu'elle soit sur la mangeoire mais sitelle est ton choix je l'accepte!!!
blague a par c'est une belle image d'autant qu'en general elle prend une graine et repart aussi vite qu'elle est venue.
