[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cette Sittelle à poitrine blanche n'a rien de bien particulier si ce n'est que, au moment de déclencher, elle m'a fait un petit clin d'oeil coquin.

That Whitebreasted Nuthatch does not have anything special except that at the very moment I pressed the shutter, it gave me that mischievous wink.

The image was generously cropped.

Hi Serge,
A curious posture of this bird on this huge trunk!
Beautiful lighting and good focusing.
I like the vertical format and the elegant tight white frame.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Serge,
NIce work on this capture. I like the details in the bird as well as the tree truck it is perched on. The textures in the tree is a nice BG for this little guy. The generous vertical crop works well here. Nice shot and tfs.- Kevin

Nice shot Serge. Incredible detail in the bark of the tree. Great natural pose for the adorable nuthatch. Beautiful color and contrast. Well done. TFS, Lori

Hi Serge,

Very nice capture of this little fellow, they are interesting birds to watch. The timing of the shot worked well, it looks almost as if it is sleeping, and that would be quite difficult in this position. Very sharp, TFS.

Best regards,
