Tit to the rescue

Tit to the rescue

It was one of those days that I didn't manage to lift a camera until it was almost too late.
I'm not sure why, but there were other things to do and I didn't feel particularly motivated.
I'd been watching the birds come to the feeder after dinner, so I opened the kitchen window,
hid behind the herbs growing in a window box and waited. The sparrows spotted me as
soon as the camera clicked and flew away. This Great Tit didn't seem to care that I was
snapping away.
I won't complain as we all know that tits get the hits.

Nikon D90
1/200s f/5.6 at 300.0mm iso640 full exif

I too get great pleasure out of feeding and watching the birds. Great image - well done!
Frank Brault17-May-2010 22:29
I love this composition with the "tension" of the feeder dead center vs. the bird to the side. V
Michal Leszczynski17-May-2010 21:31
Excellent capture. V.

A nice asynchronous composition here, with the DOF almost rendering "two planes"; the background almost looks like a backdrop.

And I'm glad I didn't have a mouthful of coffee when I read the last line of the commentary.

Beautiful shot, so clear v
