Good Day to you all

Firstly thank you all so very much for your great comments and much appreciated votes following my 'Sunset' uploads yesterday.

Todays upload are nothing special just a friendly couple of Blue Tits which visit my garden on a regular basis. I apologise if the clarity is poor but I was shooting through the double glazing of my study window.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

V3 for me, I know there are branches all around but they are out of focus enough to suggest the environment, and it's often how you see blue tits anyway (other than on a feeder of course...Smile)
