A Nuthatch who was a hungry one,
seemed to spend a lot of time looking for hidden food

Was once suggested to me to show without the food
but to me it is a challenge to get with the foodGrin
so hope you like this shot ...I do!

Some of you asked...A new lens? no borrowed for the day
But on the lookout for a 2nd hand oneWink


Thank You Steve and Malcolm for your User Awards yesterday

Try seeing a nuthatch with out food in its mouth, I don't think I ever have, I might see them but rarely get a chance to get an image like this, this is impressive Lillian. - gary

Oh I thought you already had a 500mm f/4? Got one without all the modern gimmicks, it was affordable that way. Had once a zoom with af and it didn't really help. Unless they are in the sky.
Yes I can recommend the old one to a friend.. Bet the canon ones are as good.
Yes, I like the fact he has got his prize to show offSmileSmile
