A very thin layer of snow was covering plants and trees for a couple of days, but I don't think Christmas will be white in Holland. It looks like this coaltit is enjoying the cold.
Happy Christmas everybody!

Hoi Zeno,
De kleuren van deze mees springen er nu echt prachtig uit. Het detail in de vogel is echt super, ik kan zelfs een beetje rijp op z'n snavel zien. Een erg mooie reflectie in het oog en een perfecte scherpte diepte.

Hi Zeno,
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you.
Wonderful card and a fabulous image of this beautiful Tit. Very impressive sharpness and lovely colours. Great lighting and exposure and you have captured a marvellous pose here. The DOF is precise isolating the subjects from the smooth BG. The snow on the leaves create a nice effect. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.
