[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another digiscoped picture using the Coolpix 4500 through my Zeiss Diascope. As you can see the available light was low, which meant that the camera had to be absolutely motionless and I used neither flash nor a remote shutter release.
Krüper's Nuthatch is found in Western Turkey and Caucasus and it's only occurrence in Europe is on Lesbos, which is why Lesbos is a mecca for European bird-watchers.

Hi Ivan,

This is a new bird to me. You did a great job to capture this bird under bad circumstances. My compliments!


Magnifique prise. Merci

Very nice, if a little small-cropped, picture.

A little WS: sharpened a bit!


Cute bird, cute pose!

Dear Ivan,
this is a rare shot and a good one. And the bird is in full action, not sitting still.

Hi Ivan,

I like too much these little cute birds. Maybe a little contrast could totally change this:)
