Treecreeper playing with it’s food

Cairngorms National Park, Scotland


The treecreeper is a lovely wee bird and I love watching them make their way up and down the trees in search of food in amongst the bark of the trees.  This treecreeper came pretty close to me which is quite unusual and as they are never still for long is a challenge to  get all of the bird in focus.  Needless to say I was happy not only for getting the bird sharp but to capture it playing with it’s food.
