The branches are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the blue tit. The bird and the branches are clear and sharp. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. have a nice day.

Hi John,

Lovely capture of this cute blue tit from nice POV while looking towards its fore side with great colours, details and delightful composition.
TFS and have a nice day MF!


John, this is a wonderful capture despite the fact that the bird is slightly obstructed by the branches of the tree. But that is a minor nit because I know how elusive this bird is.
The details on the bird's plumage are excellent and the colours are natural and delightful.
Thanks and regards.

Hello John,
A delightful capture of a Blue Tit. The sharpness, exposure and colours are excellent in this fine lateral POV and even though it looks a little 'squeezed among the branches the composition is pleasing.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi John, Very good shallow depth of field effect which throws all the emphasis on the small blue tit, and it looks so real as if through the window. Good frame. TFS. Murray.

Hello John! Good topic. Interesting information. Perfect capture and exposure. Ideal natural colours. Very good contrast and sharpness. Well done!

Hello john

Special a photo. It has got pretty colours (Blue, yellow, grey and white). Very nice captured and details perfect. TFS.

Dank je voor je lovende woorden bij mijn laatste foto.
Mooi pov en fijne kleuren en in zijn natuurlijke omgeving.

Hi John,
good shot, very nice portrait of bird. Well done photo. I like it.
Have a nice day.

Hi John,

Long time no see. I hope everything goes well with You. This photo's very good color-wise, sharpness on the bird's second to none, but there are too many out of focus branches in the foreground, which were too closed. I know it was unavoidable, but disturbing a bit to the viewer. The bill of the tit is also partially hidden, and the background's very noisy. A pity, because sharpness of the bird, his pose and colors are fantastic.

Tfs, best regards, László

Hallo John

Ik ben blij dat je hier te zien op TrekNature hier een mooie blauwe tiet.
Ik ben vooral genieten van zingen, vooral als ik wandelen in de Ardennen.
Mooie scherpe foto en een uitstekende kleur, een mooie actie schoot.
Zeer mooi beheersing van de doelgroep, zonder duidelijk doel 400 mm.
Een goede week en veel succes op TrekNature.

Bonjour John,
Trčs belle publication valorisant bien le sujet dans son environnement par l'appréciation de la finesse des détails et de la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi John.
What a lovely shot of a small and charming bird. Its details are ultimate and tree branch pattern decorates the scene very well too. May be some noise is visible a bit but it is not a key point. TFS and best regards.

Hi John,
Despite the branches this is a beautiful capture of the blue tit which I still couldn't have the chance to capture it like the way I wanted to..great colors indeed.
TFS this image..

Hello John,
Beautiful shot of this cute bird with lovely pose.
Great composition.
TFS and regards,
