Nuthatch and sunflower seeds.
Lens: Helios-44-2 55/2 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Russia, Lipovka ISO: 400

This weekend I photogravure nuthatches in the backyard. These birds are easy to photograph - before you take the seed they sit down on the trunk of the tree above the trough and down the trunk headfirst. I heard the rustle of legs on the bark of a tree, and have time to get ready to shoot. They are bold enough, I photographed them with a range about 1m, last photo show the process

Nice bird shots. The Nuthatch seems like a friendly type when I see them.

Great to have a behind the scenes shot too! Those birds are really approachable.

Nice shots.
Nuthatches are a lot of fun, and quite bold as you mention. Plus, they make the most amusing sounds.

Yes, every time when nuthatch is making "landing" to the tree, it tweets literally . In addition, they are curious. When I cut away the top branch of a tree by a manual chain saw, the nuthatch had sitting on the branch near the cut and looking what is going on.
