Parus ater

By Valerie1
This is a hand held shot, which I took recently, through the glass in my back door. I feel very lucky to have gotten this shot as these wee birds are so twitchy and are hard to capture. They now watch from the neighbour's tree, and if they see the camera they don't land on the perch, but fly straight to the seed feeder and away at speed.

Exposure: 1/160 sec @ f5.6

Any critique welcome and can be viewed large if you have time.

Thanks for all your C & C on my goldfinch and the GEA. Your support isn't taken for granted but very much appreciated.
