[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I 've been "chasing" crested tits for more than a week. Normally this bird is very shy, but for some reason - probably the cold temperatures in Holland- this bird is easy to approach.
For me this photo is very basic: just a bird and a tree. And believe me, this is the original photo. I only cropped it for a tiny bit and for the rest it's all natural (that's the way I like birdphoto!!!)The pose is typical for the crested tit. As I wrote before, this bird normally lives high up in the tree. Realise that this bird is very small and weighs not more than about 12 grams!!
For more information about this cute bird I can refer to previous postings.
Hope you like this one

Bonjour Zeno, joli shot, la position de ce petit oiseau est superbe le long de son tronc de conifere. Couleurs harmonieuses, j'aurais decentré vers le bas l'oiseau "lui laissant plus de place pour grimper!!" Félicitations Didier.

Hi Zeno,
An excellent shot, a strong composition filling half the frame with the tree but it works very well. Good detail on the bird and good neutral BG. Really nice shot.

Hi Zeno, a lovely shot of this cute Crested Tit. Perspective and POV is great. You have managed great detail and shapness in such a little bird. Great DOF and good detail in the bark of the tree. A delight.

Hi Zeno,

I really like this shot, which is similar to one I posted recently of a couple of Jackdaws, but yours is much better. I like the texture of the bark, which takes up 50% of the frame, and the pose of the bird, which takes up the other 50%. The level of detail and the pov are perfect. Beautifully worked shot.
