Taken today in the garden. After a very cold week we have more birds about.

Blue Tit ( Parus caeruleus ) Length 11-12 cm.
A familiar garden resident in most of mainland Britain and Ireland. Often coming to Bird feeders in winter months. A common woodland species as well. Has elements of blue-green and yellow plumage with striking dark markings on head. Young similar to adult but lacking blue in plumage. Nests in tree holes and readily takes to hole fronted nest boxes. In summer feeds mainly on insects.

An awesome capture with briliant clarity and perfect exposition Nicholas. The little Blue Tit shines in glory here! Bravo. Pay attention to the highlights in this image! They are close to the edge in my opinion. Have a great week my friend!
