Incredibly sweet little birds, beautifully photographed Karen. We only seem to get the White-breasted Nuthatch in our area, and I do love them but it would be really neat to see this one.

You have such a variety of colorful birds, it's like you live in a Garden of Eden. We get to experience it through your photography. Thank you.

Your bird photographs are very, very good. Such a beautiful nuthatch!

Laura said...

So beautiful Karen, you are so gifted at taking lovely bird and animal photos… I love my camera, it is wonderful for macro and wide-angle , but it is not good at telephoto, so I cannot really take good photos of birds or animals at a distance.

RedPat said...

All the best Gordon.
