Personally, I believe that this is the best Great tit Parus major image, I have taken at The CoppiceSmile

Taken during a session earlier today, when I was finally blessed with some decent subdued light

Finally gave up, when the South-westerly was knocking the birds for six


Many thanks to Ayoob, Alan (Alan_Baseley) & Jenny (Jenny-D), for their awards given to yesterdays wee butterflyGrin

Will PM you all later and catch up with things in general later this evening

For goodness sake do something about it then Carol, don't tell us!WinkBlush I suggest you go and take some milk of magnesia or a Rennie tablet to help settle your stomach and also cut down on fizzy drinks and windy foods as recommended by the NHS!Grin

Top drawer image Adrian, the subdued light has really helped in the exposure of the white cheek feathers and the general level of detail is excellent. You should be very pleased with this one.

Quite superb Adrian. You keep on producing images of such high quality, but the slight movement in the feathers makes it all that more appealing.
