Blue Tit Green Stick

Today was very nearly a wash-out. Torrential rain wrecked any chance of early morning photos, and lunchtime edged from rain to drizzle before finally clearing into what proved to be a beautiful afternoon (of which I had about 10 minutes in which to take any photos). These are a sample of what I got.

The blue tit was flitting between this nice mossy branch and a bird feeder.

      Robin, thanks! I’m on a mission to photograph more of them this spring so just getting some practice in at the moment.

    Nice colours of the bird and branch, despite the dullness of the sky :up:

      Darko, the sky was literally blank, but I was quite pleased with how these turned out.
