Jocelyn Walker, from Australia, is our featured photographer on the DPNow Picture of the Day this time.
When Jocelyn posted this picture late last year it generated a good degree of interest. It's a nuthatch, and Jocelyn snapped this jolly fellow in England during a visit last October. Apparently the 'bossy' nuthatch made sure there was no competition from other birds at this feeder. The pose of the nuthath on the feeder is quite an unusual one and Jocelyn has managed to blur the background nicely, despite not having the luxury of a SLR. In fact, Jocelyn used a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 bridge camera. The bottom line is that this is a picture that bird lovers will adore.
