Coal Tit

Simply no chance to get out today, so here's a shot of a Coal Tit from the weekend. I love the way the bird appears to be guarding the mealworm trapped under its right foot and the background – so beautifully linking to the shade of the sunflower seeds – was an added bonus.

  1. That is perfection. You should get these printed up as greeting cards or something.

  2. It's brilliant Tim, I love the tones surrounding the excellent bird.
