Great Tit

I was desperate for this shot to be sharp when I previewed it on the camera. I was disappointed, though, to find that the bird's head is far from in. I have included the picture here, however, because I love the late afternoon light coming through the tit's wing feathers and – despite its overall softness – the image does, I think, have a great feel to it.

  2. Need a much faster shutter speed Tim :-) Trouble is in that nice evening light it just can't be obtained !
