[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Great Tit, Parus major, is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is a widespread and common species throughout Europe and Asia in any sort of woodland. It is resident, and most birds do not migrate.

It is an easy tit to recognise, large in size at 14 cm, with a broad black line (broader in the male) down its otherwise yellow front. The neck and head are black with white cheeks and ear coverts. Upperparts are olive. It has a white wingbar and outer tail feathers. In young birds the black is replaced by brown, and the white by yellow.

Hello Arunas,
Welcome to TN!
Fine capture of this female, sharp and with good BG. This would be perfect if you cropped it a little more onthe right but that may be a matter of taste,
TFS, regards, Ivan

Nice portrait Arunas Eismantas. Interesting color and bird. But have abit noise and you can resolve this by Despeckle Filter.

what a nice and close shot of the cute great tit, arunas! :-)
well composed with it sitting the horizontal old branch,
great mixture of greens and yellows and good sharpness,
some slight noise visible in the bg and, but that may be only
my taste, i would have tried an off-centered position.
well seen & captured, thorsten.

Nice close up and good details. Light is generraly bad and difficult with this birds but looks beatiful.

Hi Arunas

Welcome to TN.

What a great way to start. Lovely pose from this little cutie. Nice saturation of colour, good low POV and good catchlight. :-)
