He certainly looks to be holding on very tightly - Great detailed capture of this bird - and I like the taut string detail too

The slight spread of the wings show the balancing act, super light - a superb capture.

A cracking shot of this lovely little great tit, he does look rather highly strung! lol Wink The light and the natural background are wonderful and the detail and colours in the plumage have been perfectly captured.
