Currently unavailable for purchase

I took this picture north of Colorado Springs, Co. Fox Run Park is a beautiful nature park with many nuthatches. I used the Canon XSi DSLR with a 300 mm lens.

    Awwww, looks so tiny, such a pretty little Nuthatch, great photo Lori

  • They are tiny. As adults, they are only about 4 inches long. I was so happy to see them and get some clear shots. Thank you, pinky. xo

    Excellent work Lori ! :)x It’s so very tiny but you got great focus on it and nice exposure too.

  • Thank you, James. The nuthatches were everywhere at the park so I got some good shots. My precious little squirrels are out of hibernation and the females look like they are about to have babies. I can’t wait. xo

    Beautiful Lori nice detail and DOF. One of these days I’m going to a me a lens with some reach and try shooting birds !

  • Thank you, Curtiss. Without the 300 mm lens, I could never get a shot this close. These birds are so small and spook easily. x

    Maybe you could try a few Squirrel " Family Portraits " this year ? :)

  • That’s the least they could do after I gave them a bag of bread today. ☺

    Beautiful Lori, stunning detail and dof!! – I had one fly into my window today, he was stunned for a while but eventually few away unharmed.xo

  • I see them in my tree once in while. They spook so easily. The trees are about to bloom here and I can’t wait. Thank you, Kate. xo
