Hello friends, the White-breasted Nuthatch in-flight.

1/4000s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« A common feeder bird with clean black, gray,
and white markings, White-breasted Nuthatches
are active, agile little birds with an appetite for
insects and large, meaty seeds.

They get their common name from their habit of jamming
large nuts and acorns into tree bark, then whacking them
with their sharp bill to “hatch” out the seed from the inside.

White-breasted Nuthatches may be small but their voices
are loud, and often their insistent nasal yammering will lead
you right to them. »

Hello Asbed,
A wonderful action shot of this White-breasted Nuthatch in full flight. Not an easy photo to capture and you even obtained some nice catchlight in its eye.

Jolie cette sittelle au décollage.

照的很特別 這一張要照得出來也得有10多年的功夫
這是專業的技術 我只能欣賞讚賞
抓的住的永恆 那就是藝術

Perfect in-flight capture of this bird in an elegant pose, Asbed.
The blurred BG makes the subject stand out distinctly.
Thanks and regards.

Truly outstanding!



Ciao Asbed, fantastic capture of in-flight bird,perfect focus, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Asbed,
Nice to see this White-breasted Nuthatch. Quite well captured. Although I like total OOF BG in such flight bird shot (I just don't say; I have posted already) but here it's very tough to get with your 85mm. Very fast lens but not for perfect birding, in my opinion. But picture is very sharp and well detailed. Even seed on its beak is clearly visible.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Hi Asbed,
Very nice shot, the flight's perfectly frozen into the frame with the ultrafast shutter speed. The "pose" is also excellent, probably this is a piece of a photo series, however, a very spectacular one. Great exposure and background blur, too, and the seed between the beaks is a great compositional plus. The photo's even a rulebreaker, as the bird looks out of the frame than into it. A big, big "well done" for this, my friend, outstanding image!
Have a nice festive season, kind regards, Laszlo
