Love this little guy who is perched so nicely on the diagonal branch. The colors are gorgeous and the detail very fine. Very pretty copper colored blurred BG. Great exposure!!

Hello Nick,

A great capture of this Blue Tit with such beautiful coloration, sharpness & details. Lovely POV, pose & BG. Very nicely taken & composed.

Hi and Good Morning Nick,

An incredible and very high quality job as usual. The details are literally impeccable, while the blurring technique has fully focused it against the background. Truly impressive shooting.
TFS and have a nice WE MF!

Hi Nick,
It's almost a year since you took this! Good to see it brought to light from your archives. A very nice, typically jaunty pose you caught here, excellent DOF and details, well done.
(i am SICK of this bad weather!)

Hello Nicholas.

Each photo of these little birds are a postcard! congratulations, great background, great light and pose just beautiful.


Hi Nicholas!

I like your picture very much. The superb background highlights the bird's beauty at best. The view of the Blue Tit in my garden always makes me think at you. Did I tell you that there is one "working" on the isolation of my house between the roof and the wall? Its still busy every day and I just hope that my house will resist...


Kind regards
