Nice lighting and great detail on this guy. The only place I ever see them is hanging upside down on the peanut feeder!

I'm a real sucker for diagonal lines - love seeing them in photos and between the perch this little guy is hanging on and the tilt of his body (besides the excellent detail, "spotlight" lighting and colors)...well, I'm just gonna have to fave it, Ms, T! Beautiful capture, perfectly executed!

WOW! FANTASTIC capture, Terry! Unbelievable POV and such incredible detail, clarity, and light! Stunning comp, too with the diagonal branch. We have families of nuthatches etc. that we feed regularly and I have gotten so blase about seeing them and all the other backyard critters that I haven't taken my camera out there in a while. This will definitely get my juices going!

Such a beautiful little one. I love birds and this is one gorgeous bird picture. Pretty colors, love the details and features. I especially enjoy the shadow and light mix with the light highlighting its head. Gives the picture that extra special look my friend.
