Ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the birds of the air, and they shall tell thee...
O speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee...Job 12: 7-8
This was one of the earlier pictures that I shot today of the Nuthatch spreading his wings before I realized he was doing his ritual dance bobbing back and forth trying to make himself fierce intentionally to scare the Downy Woodpecker away from the suet block...(where I showed the two of them together in the previous picture)...I had to work with this in photoshop to deepen the contrast around the reflective glare that I unfortunately got from the window glass I shot this picture through and decided to convert it into black and white.
