|Mésange bleue - Parus caeruleus - Blue Tit|
The nest is in a hole in a tree, wall, stump, gate-post or outhouse. Few birds more readily accept the shelter of a nest-box. The same hole is occupied year after year. The blue tit is a close sitter hissing at an intruding finger. Nesting material is usually moss, wool, hair and feathers. A clutch of eggs is often large. From 12 to 18 eggs are on record.
The box is on my window. Curtain was shot. The camera is on a tripod and is pressing against the glass. I can walk to the camera and shot without being seen. As they are noisy, I know when they are there.
I made the hole of the box quite small to be sure not to have other specy coming in. They spend a lot of efforts making the hole larger. One can enter easily but the other one need a shimmy-shimmy to be able to pass through.
Colors were not so shinny as all the light came from behind.
Adjustment with curves function.
remove some scratches from the glass
remove an overexposed area from the background

is anybody home? *g* what a nice shot, JeanMarie! :-)
great pose and perfect timing, something i wanted to try, too,
this year, but unfortunately missed the 2 week-nesting season.
looking forward to more of the blue tit and its home.
terrific job & take care, thorsten.
A funny pose on this Blue Tit. Look like he may need to go on a diet. A good job on the exposure for shooting thru window glass.Colors and detail look good. Well done!
Not bad for shooting through glass,
I did a quick WS for my critigue :)
Well done & TFS!
merci du maigre partage apparemment il y a toujours des défauts sur mes photos mais je suis comme toi !!!!
