Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus)

Another shot to come out of a wonderfully relaxing hour or so in the garden today. The feeders are hugely popular in the early evening and the tits – Great Tits, Blue Tits and the occasional Coal Tit – are by far the most numerous of the visitors. I just adored the simple but effective composition of this shot, the dramatic background provided by poorly lit foliage and the detail in that oh-so beautiful lichen.
