This is a Parus caeruleus (Pimpelmees, Blue Tit) sitting in a Magnolia. Those are very common birds in Belgium and are constantly around the feed table in winter.

Ik had al eerder werk van U gezien en ik moet zeggen ik ben onder indruk. Ik ben hier een tijdje wegggeweest, dus waarschijnlijk kent U mijn werk niet. Deze foto is subliem genomen, prachtige balans in de foto, prachtig scherp, mooie kleuren en een schitterende dof. Mijn complimenten.

What I like about this especially is the subtle almost studio like light. The background works well to create depth. Tack sharp colourfull subject. This is a stunning composition. Fantastic shot, Hans.

This is stunning Hans. The exposure and sharpness is great and I like the tit being bracketed by the branches - excellent composition.
