Top notch shot, Sylvia; wonderful detail and colouring and with the subject showing off so well against that OOF b/g.

Just love the sweep of that perch leading to the bright, detailed Blue Tit which is set off beautifully against the OOF background...all sitting comfortably within the composition. Your use of space to show how diminiative this little bird is works well...excellent viewing Sylvia...

Excellent exposure Sylvia with super detail in the plumage. Pose is good and the bird sits so well on that imposing perch.
