[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Like many other titmice, the populations of Crested tit in Sweden is decreasing because of the modern forestry. Some say with about 90%. I think thats real sad, I hope I will see them in the the future too when I´m out with my camera.

Hello Peter,
A lovely picture of the Crested tit. Have never seen one in the wild. You have captured the colours well, his head is well in focus but the rear of the body is a little soft looking. Well done.
Regards Kelly.

Hej Peter,
Very nice capture of this little Crested Tit, not so easy to catch! Good focus on the head and eye and nice natural colours. Looks good against the plain background.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Peter,

An absolutely adorable shot of the Tit. I would love to see one "in the flesh." The pose is wonderful.


Hello Peter
Excellent shot of this Tit,
Perfect colors and sharpness,
Great POV, Welldone.


Hej Peter
Nice captured little tit with great details and natural colours. I really hope that crested tit will come back in Swedish forests. I have seen this little bird only in south part of Sweden but newer in my area (Stockholm)

Hi, Peter, this is a great photo of out Tofsmes! I have been trying all winter to get a decent photo of them but without success.

I really like the colours and the composition here. Very carful treatment in the computer... that is good.


hej peter!
nice one on this little beauty!
sharp with fine composition and
a nice background!
great shot!

Very clearly image and perfect DOF control.
I like it.
Regards, Hayri.

Hi Peter

Love this shot. Perfect details, well composed against a perfect OOF BG. :-)

Too bad about the leaves on the left. Hope your picture will help create awareness on the species and help save them.

Hola Peter, an other wonderful bird with splendid colors, great pose, very well done, BRAVO!, ciao Silvio

Seems like it's pondering over the same issue as in your note. Quite unfortunate and upsetting. Back to the photo: love the pose and the selective sharpness of the head. Curious as to why the body is so soft; is depth of field that shallow? Composition with the leaves is fine. Well done. Regards,
