Just a Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus), taken last November in our garden, posing so proudly against the bright orange autumnal foliage of a Japanese Acer shrub.

Thank you all so much for your very generous support of my Red Squirrel image, with special thanks to Ronnie (RonnieAG), Ken(franken) and Ed (Glostopcat) for their User Awards - really appreciated and very gratefully received Smile

A stunning image of this beautiful little bird taken against that glorious coloured natural background. Who needs to rig up a groundsheet from Next or bedsheet from Debenhams if you can get something like this!WinkGrinTongue
