Blue-tit

By FeatherFriend
Hi everyone, this is the 3rd shot from a recent trip to Yarner Wood, just had to be a Blue-tit hoping to be a Tree creeper when he/she grows up Wink I think this may be a female because of the rather paler color and white feathers on the lower chest. Have browsed the web for more details and can't find anything definate so I am hoping some of you may be able to help here.
Many thanks for the votes and comments on my previous upload, so much appreciated as always,
Regards,
Geoff.

Superb capture again here Geoff, I have camera's in two boxes at the moment and the BT's have won in both, as previous years the Great Tits family took over and last year in one box I had the pleasure of seeing 11 babes hatch and all fly... wonderful experience.
Love this little one looking so natural

Ticks all the boxes required for this to be described was a super piece of natural history photography. From the placement in the frame - right down to the catch light in the birds eye. It's all been captured and done extremely well. Top marks.
