Thank you so much to everyone who C&C'd yesterday's upload of a nuthatch, and most especially to phil1963, teocali, bobsblue and Alan_Baseley for their very much appreciated User Awards, which were most gratefully received.

Today I've got another pic of a nuthatch, this time against a background of fallen leaves which are highlighted by the morning sun.

Brilliantly caught. You've focused on the Nuthatch beautifully. I really like the background too, it seems to compliment the bird wonderfully!

Nice detail and pose Alex.
I would prefer the background toned down just a little, as it competes with the subject - just my preference.

This is one very georgeous image, Alex..!
Often the last thing on my mind is the background to a beast or bird - and this proves how important it can be.
