Hello my friends
After a very busy day, I am with you again.
Adieu pretty insects, hello to new entrants, THE MESANGES.
Our adorable little birds are happy to find the feeders that we provide.
But they are still very cautious and it is not easy to photograph them as I would like.
Finally here for the first of the fall,
A coal tit full meal.
I think everyone recognizes.
This image has suffered only very lègères retouching and adding this framework discreet.
I hope you enjoy.
Good Sunday and thanks to all for your comments

Stunning capture, right down to the details in the eye!

Hello Edith,

What a lovely shot! The coal tit certainly looks to be enjoying his feed! The sharpness, details and colours are superb! I also like how the light is illuminating the feathers on his back.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Many thanks for your feedback on 'Round as a Christmas pudding!'

Hi Edith

A very beautiful and colorful presentation of this cute coal tit.
I really like the charming light falling on the bird here and the way it enhances all the tones on its plumage.
The details are also very clear and sahrp and the DOF creates a lovely BG, too.
Unfortunately the feeder is a bit distracting and also a non-natural element in the frame...but i guess this is the only way you can shoot one easily...otherwise they are always up in the canopy of the trees.
Nice work.

Bravo and TFS

Bonjour Edith,
Splendid capture!
It's very good the focus and sharp details got on this colorful bird.
The yellow of its plumage stands out so nicely from the black feathers.
The reds and orange tones from the seeds complements and balance so well the picture.
It's so beauty the blurred background got with the proper exposure settings.
felicitacions et merc idu partager.
Mes amities,

Bonjour Edith,
Cette mésange est SUPERBE! Quelles couleurs magnifiques. Superbes détails. Profondeur de champ et arrière plan très réussis!

Bonjour Edith, qu'il est beau cet oiseau, bon piqué, belle exposition, composition attrayante et superbe contact visuel. Bravo !


Wouaw, quelle lumière et quelles couleurs !!!!! Magnifique photo très bien composée et joliment encadrée, tu peux en être fière, elle ne sont pas facile à faire ces mésange charbonière, surtout leur tête noire, bravo Didith, je dois une fois de plus te saluer bien bas

Bonjour Edith,
What a nice photo! Bird's crystal clear (great sharpness) with nice colors. Absolutely perfect focus, Madame, congratulations. A masterpiece. Tfs, regards, László

Salut Edyth
Voilà une mésange qui m'est familière sur le site. Nous ne l'avons malheureusement pas ici. Mais comme toutes les mésanges, celle-ci fait partie de mes favorites. Sa livrée jaune lui donne un petit air joyeux très plaisant.
Ce genre de composition toute en simplicité donne tout son impact au sujet.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hi Edith!

Such a wonderful photograph! Excellent clarity and a great composition.
Lots of vivid colors makes is more special. Congratulations!


Hello Edith.
Wow! So beautiful. Wonderful colour and sharpness. Great DOF. Beautiful light. Great capture. Well done.
Regards, Steve.

Hello Edith,
Seems like this little fellow really is enjoying his free meal!
A well balanced composition, great details in the plumage and attractive colours...
