Even the blue tits have seen enough of this!
I had to use a bit of fill in flash and got soaked.. Wish I had his waterproofing...


Many thanks to you all for your kind comments and votes for the great tits. For those who had doubts, I think his name is François but he has gone into hiding nowWink

Tony, yes, 4sale.. I prefer the 600 cause I can hold it in my hands . Yesterdays were taken leaning on a fork handle.. (Since you asked) the 500mm is brighter and as sharp or maybe even better but too heavy for me to drag around.
