[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A follow up shot to yesterdays.

The young Blue Tits have now fledged and left the nest, this one only managed about six feet, and is sitting ont edge of a plank of wood sheltered by the leaf of an hedge bindweed (Gentianella campestris).

The Blue Tit ( Parus caeruleus) is a common and familiar garden visitor. Coming to the bird feeders during the winter months. Has green and yellow plumage with a distinctive blue markings on the top of the head. It tends to feed on insects during the summer months.

Taken hand held in quite on a windy afternoon, this has not been cropped, only applied a high pass filter in CS3.
Thanks for viewing.
