Birding and Photography (Two Photographs)

Nuthatches like these are common where I live. However, like chickadees, they move around a lot and in their quest for handouts won’t stay put for long unless feeding. If you want to train to get good shots of tiny birds this is where I started and I am still working on sparrows and warblers. Depth of field is always a challenge as is exposure, especially when there are a lot of twigs, branches and leaves around. Sometimes we can fix the exposure, sometimes depth of field is less crucial. But trying to keep the ISO down, while having a fast shutter speed always leads to compromise.

  4. Not an easy subject, for sure. The second shot shows how adapted their bill is to crevice feeding. Great captures!
