Just another Blue Tit

I spent a couple of hours today in hides at the RSPB reserve at the delightfully named Strumpshaw Fen here in Norfolk in the hope of catching sight of an Otter or Kingfisher. In the end, neither showed and – with high winds – little was up apart from distant Marsh Harriers, a far-off Cormorant waiting on a perch and a gathering of Mallard and Wigeon. With the camera not even called into action, I stopped off at a feeding station near the exit and did catch this Blue Tit in a very pleasing composition.

Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM lens, 1/85th sec, f/5.6, 400mm at ISO 500. Distance to subject: c 6m
