[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The White-breasted Nuthatch is common throughout Ohio all year long. This is also one of those fidgety birds that drive me crazy when trying to photograph.

Normally they continuously creep up or down a tree trunk, making it almost impossible to keep in focus. When you do luck out, nine out of ten times they either have their heads turned, eyes closed, beaks hidden behind a branch or a number of other displays that make you literally want to pull your hair out.

I felt blessed when this particular bird actually paused for a millisecond and allowed me to take this shot. For more info about the White-breasted nuthatch click here

Hello Ron

Perfect image of White-breasted Nuthatch in a very nice composition, nice lighting, excellent sharpness and details. nice BG color.



FANTASTIC capture of this nuthatch with great details.

Hello Ron,
Beautiful picture of this Nuthatch. Attractive composition with splendid sharpness. I also like it's simplicity. Overall an another attractive presentation.
Thanks for sharing with informative NOTE.
Regards and have a nice weekend,

Ha, ha! I can empathize with you there, Ron. I guess all of us nature freaks have the same kind of experience with certain subjects.
You are really fortunate to capture such a sharp and crisp image of this restless guy.
Wonderful shot. I love the bluish gray sky for background.

Hi Ron,

A splendid shot of a beautiful bird, not seen in the UK. excellent focus and dof. The colours are excellent and such a nice plain background shows off the side shot very well. Nice little catchlight in the eye from the flash makes it look alive.
Thanks for sharing, regards Bill

hi Ron
superb image incredible clarity. Nothing to say good job, if not perhaps the pose, the bird appears to be stuck on the trunk that unnatural .... but I quibble :)


Hi Ron,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the White-breasted Nuthatch. The light is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Ron

Great close-up shot of the White-breasted Nuthatch, fine POV,
beautiful eye-contact with the eye-contact, excellent focus,
