Shades of Spring

By teocali
A Great Tit (Parus major) taken in the garden yesterday against a background of New Zealand Flax (Phormium tenax) leaves. The perch is a Phormium tenax seed pod. Although is it December, the colours remind me of Spring -only 4 months before it all starts happening again Smile

*I cannot give you the distance from subject as have just upgraded to Photoshop CS6 and the metadata options do not include subject_distance - a backward step I feel for the price they ask!!!!! Has anybody else noticed this or am I missing something?

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterdays upload - very much appreciated as always Smile

Thanks Richard, but had already done that - it does not feature at all. From browsing the problem on the web it seems that others are complaining it is missing too Sad Have a safe journey too and see you thereSmile
