What a wonderful capture, timed to absolute perfection, and the subjects posing ( I know that's a daft word in this context but hopefully you'll allow me some licence) so beautifully.

It's such a great shot. I have seen it with the birds outside but have not been fortunate to capture it as it happens so quickly! Wonderful!! Just looked again and how the Bluetit holds on with one leg and defends with the other! Brilliant!!

It looks like the chaffinch is about to stamp on that poor bluetits head! You've timed this shot impecably and caught the action so well
