Personally, this Long-tailed tit Aegithalos caudatus image, is one of my favourites from The CoppiceTongue

To me, it shows that no matter what Mother Nature throws at her children, they have the resolution and ability to withstand itSmile
This fragile bird, perched on a cold, wet stone, still retains the look of hope in his/her eyeGrin

Happy Easter everyoneWink

Must have been not so easy to expose this one, but that you have managed well with good detail in the plumage: did you spot meter?
Wishing you and your's a peaceful Easter weekend.

A delight! Read yesterday there are serious worries re LTTs and Wrens with this dreadful weather. It would be a tragedy if they were lost.

Delightful shot as always. To me also my favourite garden visitor. We
are fortunate to have several come in every day - yesterday one was sat
3ft away from me waiting for me to finish putting fat cake out.
Have a good easter.Wink

I can tell how much you "feel" for these little birds. Windswept and all fluffed up, it's looking like a baby, so cute.
