Long Tailed Tit 5

By FeatherFriend
Hi everyone. Well, I finally persuaded this little devil (with the help of some Superglue..max strength) to have his picture taken again but this time away from the feeder frame. I cheated on him a bit because I took a crafty shot when he thought I wasn't looking Smile Hope you like him.
Many thanks to you all for the votes and comments on my previous shot (I think the 'Fat Lady' can finally sing Wink ) I really enjoyed the different viewpoints raised and shall take on board some of the very useful help re levels etc. Also a very big thank you to CarolG and MandsH for the user awards, very much appreciated as always.

f/6.3 1/800 sec ISO400 H/Held @500mm.

What a captivatingly beautiful image this is. I was just thinking as I looked at the large version, how fortunate we are to be able to look so closely upon a bird, and check out all the feathers, the beak, the feet, and not have it fly away whilst we are doing so.
