Blue Tit in Lavender,
This young blue tit has visited me in my apartment, but could not find the way out anymore. It finally desperately clung to a bouquet of lavender flower in a vase ; I could move the vase with the bird, as if it belonged to the decoration, to the next window where it escaped. That explains how I came to shoot a bird with a macro-lens.
Thanks for looking, Patrick

Hi Patrick, what a good capture of the blue tit. You look very close to him, and he is nice and sharp. Good colours too. Well done,

bonjour patrick
excellent details dans les plumes de l'oiseau,bonne netteté et belles couleurs.
en parlant couleur je ne suis pas sur que ce soit une mesange a tête bleue.

Hej Patryk!
Miales szczescie z ta sikorka, ktora sama do ciebie zawitala. Szkoda, ze ona najadla sie strachu. Za to jej portret zostal uwieczniony w tej galerii. Piekne zdjecie, bardzo wyrazne i w dobrych naturalnych kolorach. Zeby tak do mnie przylatywaly tematy :).
Gratuluje i pozdrawiam - Roma

Hi Patrick,
Interesting story behind the "capture". I suppose the shot would need a bit of explaining with the 50mm. :)
Anyway, the bird has nice color, excellent sharp detail, and DOF. Well composed close-up, and the black BG works great.
Very well done.
