Blue Tits (Cyanistes caeruleus)

Desperate for a break from the computer screen, I took an hour's break in the garden this lunchtime – despite heavy rain. The sky was leaden and the light poor, but I bumped up the ISO and mounted the camera on a tripod. I was rewarded for getting a good soaking with a trio of nice images of Blue Tits at the coconut shell and bowl feeders.

PS: Anyone else having awful problems uploading images today? Terribly frustrating.

  2. Love the second one in particular. Great shots. I've noticed a few bloggers complaining about uploading and various other problems again today, so it probably isn't just you.
