Taken yesterday, you will either love it or hate it with the branches in full view. Personally I like the branches as I think it gives a framing feel to the bird but I am sure there are probably a lot of you who will find the branches off putting or distracting! So here goes.....

Thanks for the votes & clicks on yesterdays Blue Tit particularly to Ade & Sue for pointing out about the branch - made sense after they made the point but not noticed before!! Sad

Take care, Lou

Superb shot Lou. So glad you did not resort to the clone tool on the branches. This looks far more natural.
