White-breasted Nuthatch - On the Climb

That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
~Robert Louis Stevenson

We get these guys down here, as well. They're a hoot to watch as they climb down the trees head first searching for a meal. Great shot!

I love the blurry background contrasting with the texture of the tree. And the sharpness of his ruffled feathers. Oh, and another of my favourite quotes. How do you do it?
