Good festivities from Nardophoto with my 300th photo.

Coal Tit (Parus ater)
Cincia mora

The Coal Tit is another perky little character found mainly but not exclusively in coniferous woodland. Several species of tit have a bold black and white face pattern but only the Coal Tit has this neat white stripe down its nape. The cold grey back colour is another distinguishing feature.

Breeds and winters in woodlands, particularly coniferous, and occurs in winter in gardens and hedgerows.

Widespread and numerous in most of Europe.
12-17 million breeding pairs throughout Europe.

Ciao Angelo

First of all, congratulations for your 300th post! I think it came at the right momment :) It's holiday time :)
Secoundly, the picture is very beautiful.
This little tit looks great, very nice and sharp and the very good DOF isolates it from a rather "difficult" BG. The POV is also excellent, the sharpness very nice and the natural colors are charming.
Very well composed, too.
Bravo, TFS and Happy Holidays!

Hi Angelo,
congratulations - 300 wonderful shots, "I'm proud of you" ;-)
This one is again so nice and sharp, I like it so much, thanks.
I had not much luck with birds until now this winter. Last winter, so many different birds visited my garden, it seems they don't find back. Thanks for yours, bye

Hello Angelo

Congratulations on reaching this milestone... 300 posts! You have chosen a lovely shot for this occassion! Very nice camera work. :-)

Hi Angelo,
Nice catch. Sharpness is good. This is a cherry tree right? Anyway i think a longer exposure or brighter catch could be better.
