[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On an early cold winter mornig (-10 celcius). At some point my fingers got so cold I could just press the shutter and keep it pressed. But when you come home and you see the result it was all worth it

This male bearded tit was in a group and quite a poser, this is my favorite shot of that series. Unseen in this picture but actually it was ringed.

Hallo Jeroen,
Kan me niet meer herinneren dat het eerste kerstdag zo koud was. De atmosfeer in de foto is in elk geval warm. Een meesterwerk! Zowel technisch als in schoonheid niets op aan te merken. Misschien had de achtergrond nog iets vager gekund, maar daar staat zoveel kwaliteit tegenover. Erg mooi!

hello Jeroen
splendidly litted up very beautiful capture

Really amazing! The composition is very sharp and the colours so warm despite the cold. That's a real Xmas shot! To the next...

Ha Jeroen,

Van zo'n portret droom ik al jaren. Geweldige foto van een baardman. Dit is echt de ultieme foto van deze soort, op een rietpluim! Gefeliciteerd!

early bird and pretty bird! :-) what a wonderful capture! never seen one of those beauties in real life. the pose and the
overall brown tones are great. thanks for going out in the cold and presenting us with this terrific shot. well done & best wishes, thor.

Oh my, quite a picture! Well worth the morning chill. The light and colors are so well balanced, with a nice gradient of cool to warm in the background matched by the birds own coloration.

Great capture.
It would be good to see more information about the photo like exp time, focal length, ISO, f-stop.
