[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Waiting for waxwings, this great tit (parus major) sat down on a tree besides me and started preening his wing. This photo is where it stretched the most.

Sadly today my tripod head broke of and my gear fell, so it has to be repaired, I'll have to upload archived pics for a while

Hallo Jeroen,
Leuke foto in deze pose. Prachtige heldere kleuren en zoals altijd uitstekende scherpte. Goede diepte in de foto.
Wat een pech! Mocht je een adres nodig hebben voor goede apparatuur, ik kan je waarschijnlijk verder helpen.

Sorry about your tripod and your camera. A solid tripod is a very important accessory, even if is a expensive one, to avoid accidents like this......
Hope you fix everything and I am waiting for your photos....
