Im watching you...
05-FEB-2010

I'm watching you...

I love these little guys as they are the most colourful visitors to our feeders. But unfortunately
this blue tit spotted me and decided he wasn't going to co-operate with the paparazza he
spied pointing a camera in his direction as he was about to dine on some peanuts. So the
stakeout began. My task wasn't make any easier by the fact that Toffee was hooking his
paw round the front door and contemplating making a bid for freedom.

Nikon D90
1/400s f/5.6 at 300.0mm iso800 full exif

They do seem to know when you point a camera at them... cute :-)

You've definitely been spotted!

Looks like you are playing 'peekaboo' lovely capture.

I just imagine that both of you were standing there, face to face, voyeuring each other and this makes smile on my face. Cute catch!

bit of a standoff then...yet you perservered and got an endearing shot...perhaps his bright plumage makes him extra wary...V

Ah yes. The everyday challenges of a photographer! Funny, thinking about Toffee with his paw hooked around the door...he probably spied the cute little birdie too! Beautiful shot, Mairead. V~

Mairead, I've tried and tried to get a decent picture of a blue tit, but they move so fast, you did really well !

Lovely capture. Think he´s ready to take off the next moment.
LynnH05-Feb-2010 22:19
Oh, this is a wonderful, detailed capture! I see his eye on you (both). BV+
Stephanie05-Feb-2010 21:40
What a little beauty! Bet he's got his eye on Toffee and vice versa! V
Máire Uí Mhaicín05-Feb-2010 21:05
Do you think he spotted Toffee? He looks a bit wary!
Colin Storey05-Feb-2010 20:52
Well done on the focus, perfect though all the branches, lovely shot.
