I went outside again later this afternoon to shoot pictures of the song birds who allow me to get near them who come to our feeder ...I was thrilled that I was able to capture this picture while outside of this little guy who is generally considered a shy wild bird who lives in the woods but has been feeling more comfortable about coming to our feeder...For him to let me get that close I felt blessed and lucky. There is no editing on this except for typing my signature. I am glad that I was able to photograph the underside of him while he was on the limb of the Crab apple tree as he was getting ready to fly down to the feeder...You can see why
this species of nuthatch is called red breasted..

Tomorrow we are expecting snow, rain and sleet mixture and I am happy that I shot these pictures when the weather was beautiful the last two days.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

I am thrilled that I got the honor of "Photographer Friday" on this picture...Thank you so much
