|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
The Eurasian blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) is a small passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. The bird is easily recognisable by its blue and yellow plumage and its size.
Eurasian blue tits, usually resident and non-migratory birds, are widespread and a common resident breeder throughout temperate and subarctic Europe and western Asia in deciduous or mixed woodlands with a high proportion of oak. They usually nest in tree holes, although they easily adapt to nest boxes where necessary. Their main rival for nests and in the search for food is the larger great tit.
The Eurasian blue tit prefers insects and spiders for its diet. Outside the breeding season, they also eat seeds and other vegetable-based foods. The birds are famed for their skill, as they can cling to the outermost branches and hang upside down when looking for food.

In a square frame well shot, the branch line made this more attractive and Sorry I did my best to praise but my Latin is weak, nice catch.
Excellent background, no doubt. I like such background color. Excellent details and exposure on its plumage. I like the way you have framed it, giving space where it's looking at.
Thanks for sharing,
Very interesting shot Marius. May be height was little high.
