Going back through a lot of old files and tidying things up a little recently, as I have not had time to get out much to get any new shots.

This is from a session I did last April, where I staged a feeding station with some blossom covered perches.

I would have prefered the Marsh Tit to be a little closer to the blossom, but hope you like the shot.

Many thanks for taking the time to look and comment on my images, as always I appreciate your thoughts.

Hope you are all well.

Phil

What is there not to like about this photograph.

The juxtaposition of bird and blossom works a treat. The sharpness is excellent and the depth of field provides for the perfect subject to background separation.

Excellent photography and one I'll definitely be awarding Smile
