[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
This young bird had been abandoned by its mother. I collected it. It was very young and couldn't nourish itself. I gave it the beakful every hour until it be able to do itself (worse than a baby !). It followed me everywhere in the house. It was at home about 1 month and a morning I found it dead. I believe I wanted to do something against nature. Certainly, it had been abandoned by its parents for a raison. This story is a rather sad but I propose this picture to you because it's a happy memory when each time I played piano, it came to accompany me by its song.
(It is a great tit).

oh, too bad, poor little thing...
great photo for a nice dedication, martine! :-)
it reminds me of the time i found a Blue Tit with a broken wing,
i took it home with me, too, and put it to our parakeet and
fed it with larvae, it recovered and i could let it free again
into nature.
thanks & take care, thorsten.

Superbe image. La netteté et les couleurs sont excellentes, l'exposition très exacte et l'usage du flash à donner ce petit éclat dans son oeil.C'est triste pour toi ce deuil après un moi de nourrisse.
Merci et au revoir....JP

Hi Martine,

This is humor! Well seen and great shot.
He would be a good candidate for "Idols":)

Bonjour Martine et qu'elle histoire! J'avais vu cette photo sur ton superbe site internet et je l'avais trouvé extraordinaire. La composition est de toute beauté et évidemment, cette photo raconte une histoire, triste certe mais tellement belle. C'est très drôle que cette mésange t'ai accompagnée pendant que tu jouais du piano... Les animaux sont parfois tellement surprenants... Tu as dû être bien triste à sa mort, toi qui en avait tellement pris soin. Bel hommage à cette merveilleuse créature. Merci,

Comme c'est touchant et la photo est magnifique, quelle composition originale et le Bg est très bien. Je joue moi aussi du piano mais doit me contenter de les entendre gazouiller au son de la musique.
