At last

By accipiter  
Many thanks for all the interest shown for my last upload. Much appreciated.
I have processed a few more images yesterday and at last have managed to get a couple of reasonable shots of Blue tits and Great tits from the time I spent at Greylake.
V1 to V4 in any order as I can't choose - v1 for cuteness, v2 for clarity, v3 for fun, v4 for jizz - maybe. V5 is a great tit and have not yet processed all of those.
They all have flaws but at least I now have some reasonable shots of these little fellows in my portfolio.
I know that many of the best bird photographers like absolutely bland or blurred backgrounds in order to show the birds off to best advantage. I suppose I mostly agree with this but I must say I often like to see something of where they live to put the shots in context.
Hope you like these. A

unf. i think V4 is focused on the body of the subject rather than the head but overall a pleasant set Smile

A super set, Arthur, each one of them worthy of its own upload. V's 2 & 4 are my favourites, I do like to see them in their natural surroundings. Carol

OK! Fully agree re settings. V3 is my top favourite with V4 being so cute that it has to make it into 2nd place!

Nice work, Arthur, and I think it's V 3 with the extended wings that ticks all the boxes for me.

I have to say that you have made a super job of every one of these images Arthur. All of them are well posed,exposed and spot on focus. I have to say that I find V3 particularly appealing.GrinGrin

I can't choose from these beauties Arthur. Personally I prefer natural backgrounds to those bland ones. Moira
