Red-breasted Nuthatch, another view

I thought this was an interesting view showing the underside of this Red-breasted Nuthatch. As I have noted in the past, it seems that most who photograph birds want to present only the most "recognizable" views, those being of the head and the upper portions of birds. However in the field, birders often see the bird from below so I like to put pics showing this view on the blog.

This pic shows a classical view of nuthatches as they are often seen head down on trees. The details of this bird are best seen by double-clicking on it to enlarge the pic. I think pattern on the underside of the tail is very interesting. SeEtta
