Photo: The elegant acrobatics of a nuthatch

47 of 1652

Our photo of the day is a study in details.

The first striking thing about this beautiful shot of a nuthatch by Richard Liebert is that pose. Don't you love how the bird is grasping the branch with its feet and swooping so elegantly to check something out? But upon closer inspection, the second striking thing becomes clear: Look at those details! You can see the image in even more detail here.
