Yet another image of these lovely little chaps on TN.
Could not resist the urge to post that one - I was very happy with the result - cloudy day with a 70mm lens...
hope you enjoy it too.


from wikipeida:

The Great Tit, Parus major, is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is a widespread and common species throughout Europe and Asia in any sort of woodland. It is resident, and most birds do not migrate.

It is an easy tit to recognise, large in size at 14 cm, with a broad black line (broader in the male) down its otherwise yellow front. The neck and head are black with white cheeks and ear coverts. Upperparts are olive. It has a white wingbar and outer tail feathers. In young birds the black is replaced by brown, and the white by yellow.

Hello Shir

What a splendid capture! This little and colorfull bird looks so cute!
The POV here is excellent, the details are amazingly sharp and the light great.
Also the colors and tones of both the bird and the surrounding branches and sky are wonderful and the DOF simply impecable.
Very well framed and composed, too.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Shir,
Well you finally got that "bird closeup" image you've been working so hard to get.Each time a bird came by (finland) you'd wander after it to try and get up close....could have lost you in the wilderness.Lovely detail and a classic pose.Well done.
