Blue Tit

Another "at last" photo. Last week I managed the yellow taxi and this week the elusive Blue Tit! I mentioned quite a while back that a pair of these little birds were feeding in my garden but that I'd only seen them twice, and that I wasn't ready with my camera. Well this time I was, sort of. I saw one of them feeding and had to leg it into the lounge to get my camera and creep back, hoping not to disturb the little chap. I managed this one half decent photo through the window (I think the window needs cleaning!) Anyway, that's it today. Just thought I'd share.

Always enjoyable to capture these illusive birds. He is rather handsome.

A truly handsome bird, which I don't think I've ever seen. Aren't you happy that you were there?

Love Blue Tits - well all of them really. We get Bluetits and the Coaltits I think here. I hang fat balls - what is this one feeding off? Never managed to get a decent shot tho. Your is a real sweet little bird.

Cute little bird. The soft focus, thanks to your window, adds to the photo! :<)

The bird's waiting there for you to capture. Look, it's posing for you ;-)

What?? You don't keep your camera with you in that recliner at all times? Shame shame. When you snooze you lose!

Congrats, Marley. Persistence pays off once again. This guy doesn't seem like he'd be elusive . . . he's just making you work for this. What else is on your list?

Guess what I was photographing yesterday. Yep blue tits on the fat feeder. That is a marvellous through a window image of such a jittery bird.

Two down. Let's not get the third, okay? ;)
