Framed Nuthatch by Photosbykev Framed Nuthatch by Photosbykev
One from yesterday. I spent a few hours walking across some wide open marshes looking for marsh frogs and didn't see one :( So I stopped off at a church that I used to spend a lot of time at to see if the regulars were still there. This regular was there with its partner and youngsters :)

Very poor light so 1/60sec@f4 iso 800 raw. The slow shutter speed gave an interesting effect on the back wing that frames the head nicely

Beautiful picture and a very nice bird too by the way! Photographed this bird myself this weekend. I really like the fact that the rest of the body is really sharp, even though the light conditions were bad. And indeed, the moving wing gives the photo a really nice effect! :+fav:

Love the asymmetrical nature of the movement. Great shot.

Great capture, as usual! Looking at your photos make me want a better and powerfull lens to my camera.... while I don't have one, I need to try to get a little close to the birds... Most of times, I can't get the pictures... =D

Lovely shot. I like how he seems to stand on "tip-toe" on his claws...

It's an amazing photo! :o

It looks like the bird is falling of and trying to prevent the fall by flapping his wing.

Even though the light condition was poor you did a great job! And there is still a lot of detail even though there is some noise :]

Very nice and warm colors on the background.

great capture and a :+fav:!
