[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As you can see by the date this has been taken from my archives just at the end of last year. I like the pose in this one with the Blue Tit looking at the tree stump almost like its a woodpecker.

Blue Tit ( Parus caeruleus ) Length 11-12 cm.
A familiar garden resident in most of mainland Britain and Ireland. Often coming to Bird feeders in winter months. A common woodland species as well. Has elements of blue-green and yellow plumage with striking dark markings on head. Young similar to adult but lacking blue in plumage. Nests in tree holes and readily takes to hole fronted nest boxes. In summer feeds mainly on insects

Hi Nick,

Another beautiful Blue Tit in a fantastic pose. He must see something in that stump he is studying so carefully. These birds always seem to be looking down. Beautiful colors, great details, fine background and a superb composition.


Hi Nicholas,

Great presentation of this Tit.
Exellent bg, pov, dof and details.
Beautiful colours.


Hello Nick
I have never captured a presentable shot of a Blue Tit and with this capture you raise the bar to a level that would be impossible to reach.
All in all a faultless presentation and one for my favourites to remind me to try harder!!
Have a great evening and Sunday

Nick, What is it staring? Trying to knock down the wood or digging a hole for a shelter. nice shot and good expresion captured.Ganesh

Hi Nicholas!

You are the master of that kind of pictures. Also this one is technically perfect and at the same time so pleasant. Not many can combine these two characteristics. The bird's position and the composition with the branch are particularly successful.

Kind regards


Hi Nick,

A very successful compo. The bird's position at the branch in these pose. Wonderful. Sharpness is perfect. Only the DOF is not so..perfect. That's not a point. But further...a great capture.

Thansk for sharing. Kind regards and TFS BOB

Hello Nick,
Very beautiful capture, specially for the warm tones and the cute attitude of the tit. Have a nice week,

Very touching pose of the Blue Tit,it looks so fine and cute.
The colors of the picture are very subtle and the sharpness is just what in needed, not too strong.
Again a very pleasant picture.
