Hello Everyone,

Looking at the blue tit on this thumbnail, doesn't really portray the character that was evident full size. I can only hope that Trekkers will persevere and take a look!

This little blue tit was resident at the farm on which we stayed in the Lake District. I watched him from my bedroom winddow. As all bird watchers will know, these little birds are full of acrobatic tricks. This one was no exception. He could hang, almost precariously, from creeping vegetation, feeders, pipes and guttering. I was really entertained!

I was amazed to witness that he was quite prepared to chase the sparrows from the feeder, even though they were much larger than him!

Mamy thanks for your visit.

Am I lucky or what? I get to be your aviary neighbor today Bev and how nice that you have a bird as well. It is all alone in this world as we see it through you eyes here....Very nicely done and fits so well into the notion of the smallest of creatures in such a large world dominated by humans! Good show!

Hi Beverley.
You managed to picture this charming tit at so cute pose. I like the composition of the picture very much as well as the scene at whole. Details and exposure of the image are great. Farming and presentation of the picture are very good too. My best wishes and kind regards.

Very beautiful picture of Blue Tit. Very good pose and composition, sharp details and natural colours.

Hi Beverley,
Wonderful shot of this Blue Tit looking out for food. Nice pose captured against a fine BG. Very neat and sharp image with lovely colours and details on its plumage. The glint on its eye looks fabulous. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.
