Great Tit

By Glyn1
My First picture of any kind of a Tit, KBan kindly invited me over to that park, this was one of the shots.

Thank you for taking the time to look

On the frame i put Coal Tit it is clearly a Great Tit. Picked the wrong picture out of my bird book, must try harder next time??

Congratulations on your first Tit capture
Difficult bird to get in harsh light as can be seen here. The highlights need a little reducing as the blacks have a sheen to them and so does her breast. Also the eye cannot be seen and that is the most important part of the bird.
Great first attempt though superb dof and bg

This is good Glyn - you have an excellent teacher in Keith - I keep promising myself I'll get in touch with him and/or Pete (Pegon) for a trip to Towneley Park sometime Wink

Yes thanks for the nudge, I realised from an earlier comment i'd picked the Tit from my bird book, will try harder next time.

Well caught! Nice colours and shallow depth of field. Look forward to your next one!
