Another capture of my performing Long-tailed Tits (Aegithalos caudatus). Because of the shallow DOF and movement blur, only the middle bird is in good focus, but I just loved the way the tails of the two perched birds seemed to line up to form a perch for the one about to land.

Another delightful shot of your performing trio, Sylvia: I go along completely with your own intro up top.
Love the position of the right hand bird, presumably about to land.
