Today i dedicate this cute little Blue Tit to my wife Mary on her birthday.
After today's posting i shall be cutting back on my postings and comments for a few months as i have a project which i will be involved in . I hope to maybe post the odd picture once a week . I hope to return to normal in the late spring . I shall be looking in and making critiques when i can. All the best to you all Nick..

Hi Nicholas,
The photo has an absolute quality, but more attractive is the combination of the beautiful pose of the bird with the perfect POV! congratulations MF!. Special mention for composition, I like the way they let us see a lot of background blur on the right. Thanks for sharing!
