As promised: White Breasted Nuthatch

I meant to post this yesterday but pandemic brain freeze got the best of me and I posted a Pygmy Nuthatch instead… Taken in the hills above SanDiego.

I love the classic nuthatch pose, David, and that’s a wonderful perch and background. Well done.

Nice capture. Classic Nuthatch pose. Very interesting lighting.

Bonus nuthatch - even better. What a classic and they never get old. Such happy seeming little birds with lively antics and behavior. A terrific catch of an appealing little critter.

Classic pose on an interesting perch. I love the way the OOF BG tree almost looks like a drop shadow.

The contrast feels high to me – I wonder about bringing out more shadow detail.
