I think Bird watching is even more fun when you can see them up-close. This image is your basic backyard Nuthatch on a feeder. From a distance, they’re cute to watch but when you can get close like this, you can actually see what’s going on!
I watched this guy for a while and waited for a moment when he would be in nice light and was doing something interesting. It is definitely a waiting game but, I was happy with this shot. Apparently, they like sunflower seeds the best because he had sorted through the other choices and grabbed this one in his beak.
Hope I get some good pointers on improving my bird photography when I’m on a workshop with David Akoubian this weekend.
