Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus)

Posted because I think the colours and light work well.

  1. Hi Tim

    First of all, thank you for your advice relating to my question on exposure - most helpful indeed. I will definitely use that technique (if the sun ever shines again that is).

    Additionally, thank you very much for your appraisal of the 100-400 lens. To me, it is obviously a quality piece of kit, having enjoyed looking at your superb images, but it is nice to have your written analysis too and from what you say, I think it would be a sound investment. So, many thanks for taking the time to do that for me, it is much appreciated.

    The Blue Tit is a magnificent bird and like you say, the colours and light are beautiful.

    Thank you again.
