Morning All,

My thanks to everyone for the great response on my Kite shot yesterday and to Ron (Maiwand) & Louise (Loobeylou) for the users awards - much appreciated.

Today, yet another visitor to my garden, the long tailed tit. Lovely little pink balls of fluff they are and they come in the garden in flocks of about a dozen (from memmory they have about a dozen eggs each brood) but head straight for the fat ball feeders and hang there nibbling away. Not often do they land on a perch so I was glad to grab a shot of one on one of the logs dotted about the place.

Tis a biting wind here the last few days so time to wrap up warm to take the dog...look after yourselves and have a good weekend. Grin

Perfect description of a ball of fluff, tiny little scrap of feathers.

Ignoring the dust bunny just above the tail, this is a wonderfully detailed capture with lovely pose and good eye contact.

Pleasure to award it a GEA.
