By Lillian  
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
and to you all for commenting

Enjoy your day

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

Can't see any problem with catching nutties with food in their mouth, Lillian, they have to eat the same as we do Wink A super image. Carol

A challenge to get the nuthatch with or without food Lillian, as they do not stay still for long at all. An Amazing capture, and you rose to the challenge well.

A Nuthatch without food? let me know if you see one! nope any bird with food in its mouth makes a more interesting shot of the bird, super detail, stunning natural and lovely colours and a great photo.

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
