A Great tit Parus major. from Friday's session at The Coppice
Just about held the cheeksSmile

Even when I left home this morning, the forecast was for white cloudGrin
By the time I had set up and sorted a few things out, the cloud rolled away and the blue sky appearedSad

Spent most of the morning, moving things around, to try and avoid the shadows. I even had the saw out and cut down
some of the offending low branches.
Don't think I came away with more than three good shots, which was a pity, because the L-tt's were out in force,
but all the shots were marred by damn shadows.

At least the place is opened up more nowWink, in readiness for next Saturday

A fine shot of this lovely little great tit, the detail, colours and clarity in the plumage are first class. I can't believe that you are moaning when we have a rare day when the sun shines, there is just no pleasing you sometimes!

Great shot.
So you had a gardening day then, Adrian.
Every possibility of some white stuff by next weekend
for you and me, should make for some good clicks.

No blue sky here today.......just a uniform grey, so no outdoor images attempted.
Another fine capture from the Coppice, Adrian, every bit up to your customary high standard.
