[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken at Paxton Pits for a display i was putting up for my college. It took a long time to get it as it was constantly moving and as it turned out, the sharpest image was the one with a leaf dead in the center.

Hi Will , Welcome to TN. You have a nice picture of a Long tailed Tit. good detail and colours. a shame its behind a few leaves but a good shot all the same. I have yet to get one. well done TFS.

Keep on posting. Just a note to say where you got it and a bit about the bird always helps.

Hello Will
Welcome to TN
This is a really good capture of a Long Tailed Tit...The leaf is a bit distracting as you say in your note but your focus was spot on looking through the leaf and getting to the subject...Excellent Camera work and a great first post.
All the Best

Hello Will,
Welcome to TN!
A fine capture of a Long-tailed Tit with good focusing through the vegetation to give us a pretty sharp view.
Technically this is fine, but if possible try to compose your shot so that there is more space in the direction the bird is facing and less space behind it: it gives a more pleasing effect.
Thanks for sharing this one and I hope to see many more from you!

Hi Will,

Superb capture of the Long Tailed Tit.
Its a shame about those pesky leaves but they are so hard to capture you have done well.
Nice details with good light and lovely colours.

Hello Will,
it pays to be patient. Here is a lovely and an excellent shot of the tit.
I like the presentation, seen among the leaves. making it so natural.
the clarity is great and the overall shot is well composed and pleasant.
