Today a nice sunny day overhere,but a bit chilly,on my walk in Alhagen I saw a few coaltits on this pine,as the tree was in the shade I used my internal flash to brighten it up a bit,the coaltit is a common bird in Sweden and on TN,so I dont think an additional intro is neccesary,anyway hoope you like this small fellow,thanks for your visit and time,

Hallo Paul,
Prachtig scherpe foto. Het is niet te zien dat de flits gebruikt is. Mooie natuurlijke kleuren. Ook de omgeving met de groene naalden contrasteert mooi met de Zwarte Mees.

What a fat little bird. I love the sharpness and details in him and then the rest of the image graduating to blur. I really like the simplicity of the composition and the simplicity of the palette.

Hallo Paul,
Weinig licht aanwezig...
Maar toch geslaagd in termen van scherptediepte en sluitertijd. Selectief scherper maken post-processing zou je misschien ietsje minder ruis bezorgd hebben. Niet dat het dramatisch is ;-).
Geen mezen gezien in Kruger:-)

Hello Paul,

The tit in your photo looks very nice as you have captured it in an interesting pose. Image is very sharp showing well the plumage of the bird. There is a fine contrast between the bird's colors and the branch he is henging on.

Thank you for sharing,

  • Great

I have a picture of a chickadee very similar to yours! Great close-up shot, Paul!
