Not sure if this Long-tailed tit Aegithalos caudatus, works or notSmile

The angle of the bird means that only the head is in focus

Anyway it is a return to The Coppice, for this evening's upload
Will endeavour to catch up with everyone this evening. Just to busy last night to bother with the PCSad

Many thanks to Carol (CarolG), for her award given to yesterday's DFTongue

It certainly works for me, Adrian Smile Very mild today, virtually no wind, but cooled quickly when the sun set. Temperature now showing 15C @ 7.30pm. Carol

Good evening from a very snowy Norfolk, Adrian.
Another super capture. It works for me, notoriously difficult buggers
to get sharp focus on at the best of times.

Works for me, particularly because the pose is different and holds the attention more than most.
The head is in focus, so that's fine.

Certainly works fro me, Adrian. The out-of-focus tail gives perspective to the whole image.
I recently binned a dozen or so photos of this great little bird - the tail was in focus but the rest of the body was not! Sad

I agree - I like the focus on the head and the out of focus tail, it gives it another dimenson. Lovely image.
