A Crested Tit (Lophophanes cristatus), perching amongst the conifers, taken during my visit to the Cairngorms National Park a couple of weeks ago. Fast as lightning, these little characters, with their "punky" headgear, are a delight to watch.

Many thanks for your great support of my "Famous Grouse" upload, with a special thank you to Colleen (ColleenW) and Richard(MossyOak) for their User Awards - all really appreciated and highly valued Smile

Doesn't seem to matter what you point your lens at, the result is always so impressive, Sylvia: another excellent shot of a particularly attractive wee bird.

Best 'Crested' I think I have seen Sylvia. Stunning pose and exposure with a lovely catchlight in the eye. A most attractive bird.

Great shot Sylvia. I must go in February next year to catch the `cresties`. You had fooled George with your group of Red Grouse in flight shot until I put him straight. Mind you, if you can fool him you can fool anyone !
