The Blue Tit (parus caeruleus)

For various reasons I have not been getting out as much as I would like lately so I'm afraid its another look back in the files for the Blue Tit. I do think he is quite smart however. I hope you do.

Many thanks for all the generous c/c's for the Black Kite and particular thanks to Steve (sparrowhawk) and Mike (hasselblad) for the UA's.

Snap........I too have been unable to get out as much as I would wish, just the odd day here and there.
But you have captured this wee bird so well, Ron, the detail excellent and the colours so accurately........all these shades of blues and yellows.
