An earlier than usual upload from me today, I have half a day off to attend an audition for a TV quiz show.........better get my brain in gear!!.

Anyway, back to the picture, a shot taken recently of a Great Tit. I have been trying a different style of perch than I have used in the past.

Thank you for taking the time to look, and as always your thoughts are most welcome.

A beautiful capture of the bird, and I think the perch is lovely.
Do let us know if you get chosen for the quiz show, and which show it is.

I really like this image and to see the fuller picture with the natural surroundings, so nice not to see the often done blank b/g - how did the audition go?
