    How about making a shallow hole in that stump? that way the lure wouldn't show.

    I have stump and trunk feeders like that with photos during the spring and summer...just got carried away and dabbed some on top of this tree trunk I use for Woodpeckers the last few mornings and she's all over it, LOL

    Actually I think that showing peanut butter kind of adds to these pictures. I have to test it sometimes. Excellent lens anyway.

    I agree...the dab of peanut butter is obviously peanut butter but in these shots it's actually a working element of the composition....bird came to it, bends down peering at it, then gets and swallows some, etc.

    And to be honest, no matter how hard we try to disguise it, its usually obvious when bird shots are being taken as they come to some "unseen" lure...at least other photographers realize it, LOL...this one is funny:
