|A little South Island tomtit - Petroica macrocephala macrocephala - peeks curiously from a silver beech trunk. These furtive little birds are uncommon & fall prey to intoruduced predators such as feral cats, rats, stoats, ferrets & even the Australasian brush-tailed opossum. However they often flit curiously through the rainforest, hoping to pick up the odd insect disturbed by the human interloper.|

Beautiful capture,well composed and nice posture.
You got this cute little birdie to pose so beautifully for you and the exposure too is spot on. Thought a simple Workshop to get rid of the noise and increase sharpness would enhance this otherwise lovely composition.
