Award Shortlist   


By ValSaxby  
Finally went out with the camera today after about 4 months! The light was awful but I decided to go anyway.

Spent about 5 hours in the New Forest waiting for this guy to appear. When he finally did he absolutely refused to come my side of the branch!

Still had great fun, and hopefully will be back off out somewhere tomorrow, light or not light!

Hope you like him - not a brilliant shot I know but it meant a lot to me just getting out there again.


As always your comments and Critism are more than welcome.

F6.3, 1/160, ISO 400, lens at full stretch, tripod, poor light
bribed with peanuts!(the nuthatch not me!)
