[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A long tailed tit taken in my garden yesterday after a fall of snow.Set a little feeding station up at the end of the garden and the birds are starting to appear here now.Sat out in the open in freezing cold conditions for an hour for the birds to arrive,very glad they did in the end because i was shivering cold.

Great effort! You caught this little fellow just right. The snow on the branch adds atmosphere and the background is well blurred.

Well done, Andrew. I love it. That is the sweetest looking bird.

Brilliant detail and the snow adds a nice touch. Big smile for this.

Fabulous capture Andrew, great details in the pens and such a class little bird. Top shot, well done.

Beautiful photo of such a tiny and pretty bird. Really nice POV and color. It looks like he has a snowflake on his nose. Very fine detail on his whole body. I enjoyed viewing this, thanks.

This is beautiful, Andrew. The bird is exquisite, Sharp details and excellent colors and light. The composition is wonderful as well.
An altogether superb shot. TFS. : )

Excellent contribution, Andrew.
Composition, the tender colours, the crisp and clear details are outstanding. Perfect BG to bring out both the bird and the snow on the branch in the foreground. I very much like the little particles of snow on the tit's beak and belly that make this pretty picture look very fresh and lively.
Great and lovely picture! Thank you.
Regards, Peter

P.S.: Welcome to TN!
