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

1/3200s f/7.1 ISO800 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).
There is no 1/3200s in TN's database.


« 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. »

Hi Asbed,fantastic in flight capture,i like a lot the wings position,looks like a sculpture,impressive sharpness and nice winter scenery in background too! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Once again, your perfect in-flight capture, Asbed.
The bird is in sharp focus and the blurred BG makes it so very authentic.

Hello Asbed,
Fantastic in flight shot of this White-breasted Nuthatch. Sharpness and details are really amazing. Very beautiful colours and a fine composition. A topper!

Hello Asbed,
As I said earlier, you must be one of the best capturers of birds and squirrels in flight. This image underlines that statement. It is fantastic, in a word. Very well done indeed.

Hello Asbed,
A splendid inflight shot of this beautiful White-breasted Nuthatch. I see these cute little birds quite often visiting our feeder and climbing up and down the pine trees in our back yard. They have a very distinctive call and are always moving, making them a challenge to photograph. You did a wonderful job of capturing this one in full flight. Nicely composed and displaying excellent detail and natural color.

Hi Asbed,
great flight shot with perfect details. This is a fast flying bird - well done

Congratulations, Asbed!


Hello Asbed,

Hello Asbed,
a pleasure to see this very clearly and sharply taken White-breasted Nuthatch in flight.
I love those cool unsaturated colours in contrast together with the black and white feathers, the composition and the rhythm of your image.
With thanks, and best regards,
