A Great Tit (Parus major) perching amid the yellowing foliage of a larch tree in our garden, just as the sun was setting a couple of days ago. The camera picked up some interesting background colours.

Many thanks to those of you who supported yesterday's upload - always very much appreciatedSmile

Unusual shot Sylvia. Lighting is superb and really makes the Tit look as if he is something entirely different. Stunning and eye catching.
