Oh Cecilia, what a sweetie he is. A Tufted Titmouse, and the tuft on his head gives him a cheeky look. It is ALL very sharp and well presented, thank you,

What i like in this picture is tones of brown every were and the cute bird with a catch light in its eye.
Excellent capture , good POV and exposure

Hi Cecilia

Another wonderful capture from you, my friend!
The POV from which this photo was taken is excellent and it allowed you, together with the correct apperture value, to have this great and blurry BG, from which the bird stands out so well.
Also the details are impeccably sharp, the warm lighting is great and due to the corrtct exposure, all the colors here are charming and well saturated.
A very beautiful composition!

Cheers and TFS

Una imagen muy bonita. Me agrada bastante el fondo y la gradación de tonos que tiene, desde la bas e de la foto a lo alto de la misma.

Hello Cecilia,
Technically this shot of the Crested Titmouse is first class but if I were to try and find any fault at all I might have composed it so there was a little more space on the left and a little less on the right.
But compared to the sharpness, POV, Bg and lighting that is hardly worth mentioning.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Cecilia,
Do you know how much I envy you right know? I try to catch this bird for a long, long time and the only picture I have is not that good. Wow! I don't see them very often and they are always appearing when lightning conditions are awful. What a great capture of this little beauty. I want one too in my gallery, lol... I feel like an envious kid ;) This is a great shot with excellent details, well done! TFS,

Hi Cecilia

What a lovely perky little fella we have here. He looks like he wants to get into mischief? His tall alert, head turn pose is lovely. Nice colours. Top quality shot! :-)

Otra impecable captura con gran sentido estético por su composición Cecilia, donde la rama tiene tanta importancia dentro de la escena como el ave misma.
Me gusta la combinación del encuadre elegido con el punto de vista captado, con perfecto foco y agudeza, realzados por la apropiada iluminación y el difuso fondo tan bien logrado.
Felicitaciones y saludos... Ricardo

Another impeccable capture with great aesthetic sense for their composition Cecilia, where the branch has so much importance inside the scene like the same bird.
I like combination of the elected framing with the captured point of view, with perfect focus and sharpness, enhanced by the appropriate illumination and the diffuse bottom so well achieved.
Congratulations and greetings... Ricardo
