[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Treecreepers (Certhidae)

The treecreeper is small, very active, bird that lives in trees. It has a long, slender, downcurved bill. It is speckly brown above and mainly white below. It breeds in the UK and is resident here. Birds leave their breeding territories in autumn but most range no further than 20 km. Its population in the UK is mainly stable.

Best looked for on the trunks of trees in suitable woodland where they feed on insects and spiders, and some seeds in winter.

Bonjour Les,
La publication est intéressante avec une bonne profondeur de champ mais le traitement de la lumière n'est pas approprié à une bonne opposition des sujets par rapport à l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
