White-breasted nuthatch fluffing his feathers. by 

The White-breasted Nuthatch has a large head, short tail, short wings, a powerful bill, and strong feet. They forages for insects on trunks and branches, and are able to move head-first down trees. Seeds form a substantial part of their winter diet, as do acorns and hickory nuts that they store in the fall. Their nest is in a hole in a tree, and the breeding pair may smear insects around the entrance as a deterrent to squirrels. This was taken in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)
