Pollen Beak

By SueWB
Taken at lunchtime yesterday over at the park near work. Not sure what the little blue tits were doing with these buds, but they spent quite a while foraging around and getting very pollen covered beaks in the process.

I would have liked to have gotten something a bit sharper and less cluttered, but a tree is a tree and the blue tits just won't listen!

Please view LARGE if you can for full pollen effect!!

I dont think the bg is too cluttered, the dof has rendered that problem obsolete for me. Wonderful shot. I am yet to catch a wild bird at all.
