Hi Nicholas,
Lovely bird in funny pose :)
Picture full of details, fantastic colours. Very well composed.
I like it!

Tn is sloooow today. I am having troubles staying on...but this is a great image NIck. I will perhaps return for longer stay when the machine quiets down. Until then know it is clear and crisp.

Hi Nicholas,
Very beautiful shot of this tit.
The background is fantastic (though it is a bit noisy).
Great POV and DOF.

Hello Nick,
It is no doubt one of the finest shots on TN with excellent details, colors & expression of blue tit. TFS.

Hello Nick
Il est trop attendrissant, avec son regard timide
Merci pour ce beau cliché

Bonto efecto el creado al enfocar el ave , supongo que desde cerca, ya que captas muy bien el volumen, los colores y las texturas en todos los planos por la gran profundidad conseguida.
Buen fin de semana: hoy es dia festivo en toda España.

Hi Nick!

Cute youngster. Good pose with turned head, shinny eye, natural colours. Very good portrait of this fast and hard to capture bird.

Hi Nick,
As usual, an excelent shot of a young Blue tit in a lovely POV. Great shot as you always do. TFS.
Greetings from TRN Cyprus,

Hi Nicholas,

This is a typical pose of a (young) Blue Tit. This picture is full of details, fantastic natural colours. Only a pity that the two legs are not sharply in focus. But that's not so bad since the overall picture is a beautiful picture.

POV and BG are - like always - PERFECT.

Have a nice weekend and TFS BOB

Oh, Nick, this just makes your heart jump!
What a fantastic and, to me, completely unique pose! It just looks like a young child with that beseeching attitude... 'is there any more?'
Superb textural and colour details.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
