Hello Nick,
A fine capture of Blue Tit taken in an excellent pose and from a fine POV with superb sharpness and lighting, which make it stand out well against a BG the colours of which are not ideal. Excellent composition too.
Thanks and have a good week,

Very likeable fellow, your delicate Blue Tit Nicholas, it looks so vulnerable among all those tall vegetation. Such a perfectly illuminated individual in great detail, surely the work of a master nature photographer!

Coucou Glen, this is my favourite! It is beautifully shot in very nice saturated colours, which allow us to appreciate more fully the beautiful little animal on a twig. What a beautiful little bird, I love the blue colours and its expression, against the green leaves, it's ravishing. Ah, it's so fun to write about your pictures!

Hi Nicholas!

It could be him... Since a couple of days, my wife and I notice a strange noise coming from the roof of our house. I finally observed a Blue Tit that worked hard in the little space between the roof and the wall. On the ground, I find little pieces of foam of the isolation. Is this Tit building a nest? At that time of the year? Well, your superb picture reminds me of that nice busy fellow and I just felt like telling you this story.

Kind regards


Hello Nicholas
ecxellent capture of this Blue Tit taken in your garden
i like the wonderful DOF with the nice BG and the great focus on the bird and his branch, beautiful vivid colors
Have a good night

Hi Nick,

One of my favorite l'il birds:) you captured it in a lovely posture with pretty facial expression MF! DOF is very effective here that it creates a 3-D effect!
TFS and have a nice night!
