You wanted a pose?

By Lillian  
My young Nuthatch came back again yesterday with his brother/sister, and I had a few morsels
hidden away for them from a 'fat ball' on the advise of Keith ..thanks.. Is this the pose you wanted
or in V2 another look.... I pressed bits onto my 'Gum tree' and took these from the B/R ..again
unfortunately it was rather overcast and the ISO was up to 1000 so not happy with the noise , BUT got the photos! and Posed! used the tripod

Thank You all for your kind comments and votes yesterday,
It was a day we want to forget regards Ted and the hospital...not good.

These are great Lillian, esp. V1, the classic Nutty pose and great detail in the plumage. Not much evidence of noise on my screen, just two great images.

The nuthatches do seem to be the contortionists of the avian world, Lillian, achieving marvellous poses. Two very nicely captured shots, the detail in tue plumage excellent, and very natural colours.
(My regards to both Ted and yourself........R)

v1 is a cracking image Lillian! I love his pose and the bokeh is just super! v2 is also brilliant, but v1 clinches it for me.
I'm sorry things aren't well with you... even though I don't know you or Ted.

Ooo...I like the pose, light and detail in V2, Lillian. AWESOME. I first heard of the term 'fatball' from Cassiecat and that word tickles me senseless.
