Nuthatchs get into all sorts of contortions as they wind themselves around trees looking for food. As you can imagine this pose by the bird caught my eye and I was lucky to capture it. It helps to know the habits of birds and study them as much as you can from a distance before photographing them (i.e. do they go up or down the tree and when they stop what do they do. etc.)  Over time you can anticipate where and when to best take your shot.

  4. You captured a wonderful moment here, Victor, and great advice about getting to know the bird’s behaviors – so essential to anticipating the ‘next move’.
