Bold White-breasted Nuthatch, Central Park 4/9/2013

I put a cloudy sky behind the Nuthatch to eliminate a noisy background. No other enhancements were necessary for this sideways standing Nuthatch with attitude.

Composite created in Photoshop 10/3/2014. NIKON D7000, f-stop f/6.3, exposure time 1/640 sec., ISO 100, focal length 600mm, and max aperture 5.

    When I look at this photo carefully, I can see that the nuthatch is standing sideways on the trunk, but my first impression was . . . oh, this photo is displayed sideways. Silly of me, probably, but I really thought it was a mistake at first.

    This one is really weird. The bird looks like it is tree climbing.

    I think this is a great picture. It is very alive. The nuthatch almost looks like it is about to move.

    anti gravity, great!
    maybe, crop the sky side to tighten the birds stance and mood
