[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The largest UK tit - green and yellow with a striking glossy black head with white cheeks and a distinctive two-syllable song. It is a woodland bird which has readily adapted to man-made habitats to become a familiar garden visitor. It can be quite aggressive at a birdtable, fighting off smaller tits. In winter it joins with blue tits and others to form roaming flocks which scour gardens and countryside for food.

Hello Les,
Very nice photo of this Great tit in excellent sharpness, details and a fine pose. A pity that the black colours are a bit bluish, specially on the head and feet. Beautiful blurry background.

Hello Les,

It looks like Oil painting when I first looked at thumbnail. Beautiful species. Well captured against such beautiful BG.
Thanks for sharing,

Remarkably sharp and well composed image of the Great Tit, Les.
You have utilized the ambient light very effectively and I like that catch-light in the bird's eye.
