Fresh from outside ...
Just 1 hour ago I saw this cute little Punker.

This Crested Tit (Lophophanes cristatus) is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae.

It's not easy to catch this guy, it was very hectic - but also so lovely.

Thanks for looking ...
Enjoy the weekend.

Hello Sabine,
I know well how lively these little guys are and so hard to capture. You did extremely well here getting such a fine and close portrait. I love its cheeky look here and the bit of snow on its beak! Excellent details and fine natural colours. Well done!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Wow Sabine!
A great capture of this little punker, so close and from such a great POV that really show the crest well of this Crested Tit. Not an easy one to capture but you did it well.
Thanks and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

What a lovely bird, Sabine, it is so cute, it seems to be made out of velvet. The picture is outstanding, we can see all the details and your composition is great. I love the colours, very "winter"! Great shot, I'm amazed, what a fantastic little bird. Thank you!


Hi Sabine
Beautiful bird and great photo. Nice blured background, good sharpness. Not easy too photograp but you managed to take a great shot

good old Germany is still living in the disco age..My son was in the Army Band there for 6 years...so you give an almost dated approach in title...but a very true to form for that time period..Well seen ..

Hello Sabine,

You have got a fine photo with the bird in a fine pose. The sharp image shows well the crest of the bird. As a matter of fact the whole plumage is well shown and colors are naturaly looking.

Thank you for sharing,

Hello Wishnu
This is a lovely image with great details captured. I very much like the different "segments" in which the plumage is displayed. The tuft is really charming and it truly looks if this "punker" is ready to "rock and roll". Thanks for sharing, this charmer especially if you say it was hectic to capture it, and I do agree. It is indeed lovely.
Best regards.

Hi Sabine,

I have only seen a Crested Tit in pictures! He looks like a little imp and you have captured well not only his appearance but his personality. He is adorable - a little bird with a big crest. Colors are very natural and details of the face, eye, wings and plummage are nice and sharp. I love the pose!

Merhaba Sabine,
Bu küçük pankçının ustaca bir karesini sunmuşsunuz. Göz teması renkler ve ince detaylar ustaca kaydedilmiş. Emeğine sağlık.

Hi Sabine

Very nice shot of this punker! ;) Was he getting ready to go to a concert, or actually hold a concert there in his tree? :))
Lovely close-up of this cute fellow, presented here with good clarity and with a great DOF.
I like the textures of its feathers and the lovely little reflection in his eye.
Nicely done!

Bravo and TFS

Liebe Sabine,
Eine witzige kleine Haubenmeise zeigst Du uns hier! Ein Bild mit nicht konventioneller Pose, gefällt mir gut. Ich sehe diese Vögel oft im Wald neben meinem Chalet, sie sind so flink, habe noch nie eine gut fotografieren können.
Einen schönen Sonntag wünsche ich Dir

Hello Wishnu,
Great sharp-detailed and very close photographed punker. Beautiful homogenious colours with a good DOF. Excellent POV and composition.

Hi Wishnu,
Excellent capture of this proud little Crested Tit with very good pose and composition, sharp details and natural BG.

Ciao Sabine,
quale meraviglioso ritratto di questa cincia, eccellenti POV, DOF e composizione con la splendida postura ed ambientazione, buona definizione e stupendo il dettaglio dell'occhio con il riflesso, molto belli i colori.

Hello Wishnu,
WOW! what an adorable little guy, beautiful colors and
light, superb sharpness and depth of field, lovely
catchlight in that brown eye, really great capture.

Hi Sabine,
what a fine capture of this Crested Tit :-)
You've photographed it in a great pose.
Sharp with excellent detail.
Very well composed.

Superb work!

Hello Sabine

A lovely capture of this Crested Tit with a little attitude.
The crest certainly gives him the look of self-assuredness.
Lovely POV with excellent detail.
Nice eye detail and catch light.


Hello Wishnu,
Thank you for sharing this cuttie with us!
very good closeup with perfect sharpness, natural colour and superb details
well done

I can sense the restless energy oozing out of this cute little 'Punker', Sabine.
You were quite successful in snatching this sharp and crisp image of this otherwise fidgety guy.
Who says birds don't have expressions on their faces? This fellow is quite eloquent in its facial language :).
Thanks for the picture and best regards.

Hi Sabine.
a very nice picture of the Punker, it's a brother to my Punk Tit :-))
As I said before, you have a great garden with all kind of birds.
Well composed with a nice POV and the colours are natural.
But I think it could be a bit sharper but but since used a quite long shutter speed it's OK.
Well done, my friend.

Hi Sabine.
Your little guy looks like giant on my monitor. Great shot of the cute bird. Magnification level is impressive as well as details of the bird. Exposure of the image is spot on and lighting and colours are delicate and fine for eyes. Bravo. Well done.

Hi Sabine,
great portrait of this beautifull Tit.

Hi Wishnu,

Fantastic capture.
Nice colous with beautiful details.
Lighting and composition are splendid.

A very nice photo of this bird. I love the crest and great details of the plumage. Similar color tones as he Black-capped Chickadee but, looks like a Jay!

Nice... Hope you get more shots of this bird.

Thank you for sharing,
