Common Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus)

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

This is the lakeside place of the friendly Robin ~ where I have hung fat seed balls in a wire holder, nuts in a wire holder and bird grain in a plastic tube and access holes. The Robin has learnt to use all three ~ now his neighbours the Blue Tits gather round to get some too. There are several pairs and Mr Robin is none too pleased ~ but can't fight them all off :~) For me ~ I'm trying to learn how to take shots of birds and I'm not finding it easy. The Blue Tits for example hardly ever stay still for longer than a second or two.

Hi Nick - love this series of birds. Really crisp images. Must have taken a lot of patience (or large number of images from which to select) because these little guys really flit about. Greetings from Wilts, Matthew

You are doing well with your bird photography, Nick. I love the colour of the bird together with its surrounds. L
