A Nuthatch (Sitta europae), taken in the garden yesterday. I have been experimenting with trying to get different natural backdrops. as there is a limit to the number of birds on sticks one can take! This background consists of a golden cupressus hedge at the bottom with red dogwood twigs and the blurred outlines of pampas grass plumes amongst them. The space around the bird has been left to illustrate this.

Many thanks for your support of yesterday's upload and a special thank you to David(Johjo58) for his User Award - something I appreciate highly Smile

Lovely pose (how obliging of him). I like the bright bokeh backdrop. Worth a vote.

Absolutely top notch Sylvia, I like the way this little one is posing for you and the natural background colours provided by your shrubs
