A Long-tailed tit Aegithalos caudatus, taken this morning at The Coppice, in very wintry conditions (The backdrop is snow)

Thought I would give the new lens a try out, without the TC fitted - works a treat IMHOBlush

Many thanks to Ali (ali63) & Jenny (Jenny-D), for their extremely generous awards, given to Thursday's Great titTongue

Never had time to browse the site yesterday evening, so I will try and catch up with everyone later in the dayWink

A cracker, Adrian. What a wonderful day today, virtually no wind, wall to wall sunshine, and a temperature of around 23C. BUT, Monday is forecasting gale force 9 winds, I've never known it that high before, so have spent the day making sure the garden is relatively safe. Carol

Looks rather like the conqueror of Everest in this pose! So cute and the snow does add something to an already fine image.
