Always a pleasure to view your shots, Sylvia: another excellent one of the blue tit, the light picking it out so well and set against a more sombre b/g.

Love the composition of this one Sylvia,

The colours of the bird are enhanced by the dark green b/g.
The unusual perch, the back view, the turn of the head and the catchlight in the eye give the image a little more than the average bird shot.

Graham.

I really do like that turn of the head pose and the view of the plumage of the back of the bird. Superb detail Sylvia.
