Hi Andrea
Nice shot of this little guy. Well composed and presented in his natural environment.
We have this kind of bird here in Scandinavia too :) but they looks little bit different. The head is white all the way to back.

Hi Andrea,
a very nice picture of the Long-tailed tit in a natural environment. I like the POV and compostion.
As Ralf mention; it's a bit different from ours.
Well done.

Ciao Andrea,
ottima foto di codibugnolo!

Hi Andrea,
What a tail on this little guy. Capture is well detailed and colored with a very different composition. I like it, thanks.

Ciao Andrea, un raggio di sole sembra quasi carezzare questo delizioso uccellino dalla lunga coda, molto bella, ciao Silvio

What a beautiful pose. This one must be a Longest Tailed Tit :))
TFS Andrea.

Buenas de nuevo Andrea
Una gran captura también la de este "mito" que es como se le conoce por estas tierras.
Como todos las aves pequeñas son inquietas por lo que pillarlas bien tiene su mérito.
Un saludo


Mi piace molto anche l'inquadratura: complimenti bel lavoro.

Grazie, ciao, Emanuele

Another great one!
Showing great details and colors it portrais vrey well the habits of the species!
I am a sucker for this species!
