It is the most common titmouse and the only species of Western Europe which is blue. It is smaller and more round that the coal titmouse, with a shorter nozzle. In fact, blue is limited to the crown, with the wings and the tail, the remainder of the top having a greenish color. The lower part is yellow lemon, with a black line separating the chest and the belly. The cheeks white, are surrounded by a fine stripe dark blue crossing the eye. The female and the young people have colors a little duller.

Hello Laurent!
Very nice portrait.I liked POV,cross framing
and composition a lot.It's a little out of focus but visual impact is wonderful.Thanks

Laurent, great colors and pov. I like bg too. In my opinion, sharpness could be a little bit better.

I tried a workshop.

salut laurent
encore une trés belle réalisation de ta part.
tu as du attendre un moment avant de pouvoir la photographier avec sa nouriture dans le bec!!!pas evident.
le panaché de couleurs est trés beau. bravo.

Hi Laurent,
A beautiful and colorful little bird the Titmouse. A nice frame filling composition. I think Livio's workshop on the sharpening helps out. You captured a great pose.

Bonjour laurent,
nice capture, a very good DOF, Beautiful colors and details. The framing well matched.

Hello Laurent,

Love the shot you have done here, good colours and BG. Think the bird could be a little sharper to finish the shot off. Nice note. Well done.


Hi Laurent,
a nice portrait of the Blue Tit. The seed is a bonus.
It's a bit soft but good POV and details.
Well done.

Hi Laurent,
Very nice shot!
Excellent POV and good colours,
nicely framed.
Thanks for sharing!

Nice shot, good overall comp, well done. Didn't see your camera settings but just a suggestion, consider if you will decreasing your Exposure Value (EV) setting on your camera when shooting in harsh light or overcast conditions, will improve your ability to get more detail in the whites.

hi laurent,
i see, you like Blue Tits, too! :-)
very nice, close capture,
good details - what´s it having for lunch?
well seen & captured,

Hallo Laurent,
This little beauty is captured just in the right moment! I love the way he's posing with the food, good DOF showing his fluffy feather coat well...
Pablo -

It is difficult to understand that how this photo had been taken 41 points:) First of all it is not sharp, and I can see that photo had a grain/noise problem a lot before your neat image work. Good points will not developing you, good critiques could do this:)

Hope to see your better photos;)
