Look, I found a seed

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.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
