[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.

Very nice shot, good color and detail. Seems a tad soft around the eye and white cheek a bit over exposed. Nice catch though.

Very nice shot, lovely composition and pose of the tit. Good sharpness and details with a very nice blurred bg.
I also like the tree were he is sitting on.
