A Long-tailed tit Aegithalos caudatus, is this evening's selection from The Coppice.

Off up there shortly, to top up the feeders. At least the evenings, are beginning to remain a tad lighter at lastSmile

Back in a quandary about the light again - don't really know what to do - perhaps better left well alone and see if there is the possibility to implement some of Mossy's ideasWink - will PM you later mate

The detail on the bird is superb Ade. You will always get a slight shadow in shade areas unless the perch is light and reflects a little light back. Remember nature, nature, nature.....not studio. You get one chance normally a split second and cannot get th emodel to turn this way and that and have an assistant holding reflectors.
Light and shade gives the shape and depth to the bird and like this with exceptional feather detail works so well.
Still not sure about th ebg.
If you struggle get a sheet of MDF and let it weather naturally. I have some in my garden thats covered in grime and moss and the tones on it change all the time depending on light.
Great Longy
