Parus ater - coal tit.

This tit is quite frequent in our region, but normally nest are difficult to access.

Hello Pierre,
Great to make your acquaintance through your kind critique on my recent bird picture. Thanks!
You have captured this cute Coal Tit carrying a heap of food for its young one. The image is very sharp and crisp with superb focus on the bird's eye.
The bird has been nicely isolated from the blurred BG and the branch on which it is perched adds to the beauty of the composition.
Well done and TFS.
Warm regards,

  • Great

Hi Pierre
Nice photo! I like the unusual pose of the bird.
Composition is good enough also. Its a pity that the focus is a little soft..
Thanks for sharing


Hi Pierre,
Lovely Image, nicely framed bird and well chosen aperture settings.
