Blue Tit ( parus caeruleus )
Recent capture at the feed station on a lovely sunny but bitterly cold morning. This little bird was engaged in picking seed out of a hole in the trunk and adopted this pose which made him look for all the world like a minature Woodpecker.
I like him and I hope you may also.
My very grateful thanks for the tremendous response to the Coal Tit. Most generous.

Ron

A super pose, Ron, from this bright-eyed little blue tit, a first class capture and presentation. Carol

It does seem to have mimicked the typical woodpecker pose, Ron: fine shot, superb detail and colours, and with that bright catch of light in it's eye.

That's all we need - a Blue Tit with an existential identity crisis (I am a Blue Tit therefore I am a Woodpecker) Grin I hope they don't do that to my Silver Birches... Excellent shot.
