White-breasted Nuthatch

This is my first decent capture of a Nuthatch. They’re so quick. I haven’t been able to get one. Today I got lucky. This one wasn’t too skittish. I suppose it is used to people being around.

I found a near mint condition 300mm f4 today and purchase it. I have a week to try it out. Initial thoughts are it is very responsive and quiet. I still have to crop in, but this isn’t a heavy crop. I’ll try it with my TC in the next day or so. Focusing seems spot on. I don’t do scientific tests I just shoot what I like.

I didn’t do much to this photo- in ACR I tweaked white balance …it was fine, then highlights, and whites, pushed the blacks a little, added clarity, vibrance, and the lens correction filter then moved over to Photoshop to sharpen a tiny bit, resize and add my copyright. Pretty much what I do to every photo.

I bought a new backpack too. A Think Tank Streetwalker HardDrive. I plan to take a photo of it very soon loaded with my usual set-up.
