An endearing shot here, they look almost as though they are made of cotton wool. A lovely BG that makes the subject stick out naturally, I just wander what they are so transfixed with ?

Hi Sergey
Fantastic shot of these birds. They are paler than the ones here in the UK. Great composition and well exposed. TFS.

Outstanding image. Everything is awesome.
For instance both birds are in the depth of field range.
Secondly the colourful out-of-focus background, thirdly the detail in the highlights...and so forth.

Hello Sergey,
What a cuties. And an excellent photo. Both birds were looking at the same thing, fantastic timing. Perfect sharpness and details and beautiful natural colours, also in the BG. POV, DOF and composition are outstanding.

Be back later

Hello Sergey,
It's the most lovely shot of the Long-tailed tits I have seen. They are very cute and the colours and details amazing. The diagonal composition, the attitude of the birds, with their black eyes are very beautiful. Best regards,

I've never seen these before, but I want to pick them up and cuddle them! They look young, humorous, and yet wary. Do I trust you or not?

Great composition, BG is terrific, and the details are awesome and sharp.

Sergey... you mean to say they both just sat their looking absolutley alike, striking similar poses as you clicked away....This is superb.. incredibly perfect in every way...And there is something about their eyes that look like a greyglazed stone.Really wonderful ..and thanks so much for sharing.
Would love to add this to my "Unforgettable' Theme.

Hi Sergey. Excellent framing of this pair well perched on that branch. The focus and exposure is very well controlled and I like the muted background here. Well done and TFS. Best regards. Jusni

Hola Sergey, muy bonita composición, fotografia con buena definición, luz y color natural. Un saludo
