Happy face

Photobucket
I caught this little Nuthatch in my camera lens this weekend.

Nuthatches belong to the bird family "Sittidae" which is a Greek word and used by Aristotle for a bird that pecks at the bark of trees. Just so's you know, ok?

Oh, I love, love, LOVE this!!! Nuthatches and chickadees are my favorite birds. Oh, and maybe tufted titmice, too. Love the composition, and the bokeh. Well done!

Hope you are doing OK. Good luck with everything.
xoxo,
Mary

Love this shot! You know, if you couldn't find a mushroom ;) You know me though, I love bird shots. Or flower shots. Or clouds...
