Good evening all!

Went with my sister to Howletts Zoo (a wonderful present sis - Thank you!) on Monday. Only thing was I seemed to have spend an unusual amount of time photographing the wild birds...

To my utter delight I managed to capture a Long Tailed Tit, these adorable wee birds look just like lollipops. I know the BG is not ideal but I thought it gave the image a sort of painted look - comments gratefully received!

And a big thank you to everyone who voted on my last few robin uploads!

Nice detail & catchlight & I kinda like the painterly effect of the bg.
