I’m fond of these little birds with their oversized heads and nasal calls. They’re often seen moving sideways or upside down on tree trunks; I was happy to catch this nuthatch in an upright position. It was in a dark part of the forest so I made a few exposure adjustments in Lightroom and corrected a slight green colour-cast in Photoshop.

  1. That little portrait on top is cool. I like how the out of focus background has a certain swirling and radiating quality out from the center of the image.

  10. I know its difficult to get a good shot of these little active birds, often high in the dark canopy. You’ve done well.
