Thank you for the response of the butterfly I have many more like it that I will be sharing with you.. However for now I wanted to show this Nuthatch that I captured .. Well there isn't much to see other that what you see and I was amazed the shot took..I was sitting on the edge of the fish pond waiting to see what might fly around to get some shot and try out all the helpful tips you all gave.. One being leave enough at the corner so it gives the bird something to be looking at.. well I could reach out and touch this little fellow with my hands he was close.. he let me raise the camera and MF and take the shot.. the AF wouldn't even dare to focus on him it did some struggling so I clicked to the MF and snapped.. What you see as the bg is a chain link fence which is around the biggest part of the back yard for Daisy (lab) to run in.. Still I liked the out come and hope you do to..

Thanks for looking Smile
Please remember Rosalie.. She needs our prayers so much for strenght and healing..
Remember eachother as well ..

Birds with lots of whites and blacks in them can be very difficult to handle exposure wise. Although there are a few spots where the whites are just beginning to blow you have handled the exposure very well here.

Superb image well captured

Large is a must for this shot to show up all the very fine detail of those lovely feathers.
A wonderful capture.

Dawn is is a very good shot. I think that, whilst it may be a little overexposed on the hightlights, under the circumstances you produced a lovely image. I think this is one of your better shots so far.
