Parus major

Lunghezza di circa 15 cm e apertura alare fino a 23 cm. Occhi marrone scuro; becco nerastro; tarsi e piedi grigio azzurrati. Maschio nero sulla testa che scende a contornare le guance bianche; gola nera che si prolunga in una riga nera che attraversa il petto giallo; La parte superiore è verdino giallastra; ali groppone e coda grigio-azzurro. La femmina è come il maschio ma più piccola e con la riga nera sul petto più sottile. Il giovane è più sbiadito e ha guance giallastre. Le cince sono soprattutto insettivore (in primavera ed estate) nutrendosi in particolare di insetti e loro larve, ragni e lombrichi, mentre in inverno anche di bacche. Distribuita in tutta Europa eccetto l’estremo nord scandinavo e l’Irlanda. Al nord e est migratrice o migratrice parziale. Sedentaria e residente al sud. Si trova ovunque: giardini pubblici, parchi, boschi di latifoglie, zone aperte e cespugliose con presenza di siepi e boschetti. La cinciallegra nidifica nelle cavità protette degli alberi e dei muri costruendo il nido con muschi, peli e piume.
Depone le uova (normalmente 8-15) tra Aprile e Maggio covate dalla femmina per circa 15 giorni. I piccoli vengono accuditi da entrambi i genitori per circa 20-30 giorni dalla dischiusa.

LA FOTO: scattata con il Nikkor AFS 300 f4 + kenko 1,4, senza flash, con cavalletto; ISO 200; 1/400 s; f 5,6.

It is such a pleasure to see quality stuff back in Treknature, Enrico! Brilliant work! Love the chosen point of view, the use of relatively wide aperture settings, which separate the Great Tit, superbly from the background! Bravo! The only small issue I have is related with the white balance. The image looks a bit "reddish", but hey Enrico...that's already a masterpiece!

Ciao Enrico,
Il tronco lo riconosco e forse forse anche la cinciallegra è quella che ho incontrato il giorno prima! Fantastico scatto, fuoco perfetto, colori naturali ed equilibrati. Ottima anche la composizione aperta e spaziosa con uno sfondo morbido e perfetto per evidenziare il soggetto.
Complimenti
A presto

Hallo Enrico
In the past images of this bird was posted quite a lot on the gallery, and then it dissapeared. Today I see your posting and it reminded me once again how beautiful this bird is no matter how many times you see it. It is one of those that you do not get tired looking at it. It is really an eye-cather. I like the composition and the details on the tree's trunk that is so beautifully seen. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Anna

Bonjour Enrico,
Cette mésange n'est pas facile à photographier,puisqu'elle est toujours en mouvement. Ici la netteté est parfaite et la lumière était idéale. Un environnement naturel aussi et un cadrage horizontal spécial, je pense que la plupart aurait choisi une présentation verticale. Bien vu!
Amitiés
Anne

Ciao Enrico,
Excelente fotografia desta belíssima ave!!! Muito boa defenição e nitidez!!! Bom trabalho.
Ciao, João Edgar

Ciao Enrico,
