Hello Nick,
another fantastic portrait of the Blue Tit taken from an excellent POV with outstanding sharpness and excellent detail on the plumage, marvellous colours, a very pleasant composition with a lovely post of this small enchanting bird.

Ciao Maurizio

Hello Nicholas,
Fortunately, during the winter, you have these birds on hand!
Good work, with bright colors and very solid. Excellent texture of plumage and a comfortable volume in the body of the bird. Greetings, thanks for sharing! Happy WE, I wish for you, better weather!

hello Nick,
Hope you'll be fine friend. What an amazing shot this is! The clarity and the sharp focus and that maddening background, make this such a special shot for me.The bird itself is small and so dainty and graceful.....a living specimen indeed.The perch seems bigger than the bird but it seems you have lured it onto this....please do someday reveal this secret of bribing bird, bro.....smile.Thanks a lot for sharing....take care...warmest regards/Abid
