the bird or the bug?
Today I felt like the bird more than the bug. Not insignificant, but in charge!

It's funny I haven't seen any nuthatches around for a while. Then this guy shows up, snags a bug (I didn't know they were carnivores) and hopped from tree to tree. Here he's tucking the bug in a crevice to eat it. It was pretty amazing to watch.
A little later he hopped to a tree with some nice backlighting. Spiderweb straight out from his beak. And I think the blobby tree kinda looks like a sideways heart, I never noticed that before now.
btw -all of these were taken with my 100-400mm lens while talking on my cell phone (to my mommy, lol). You try holding that lens and the phone.
