On the joy of fleeting moments

Long Tailed Tit

It's hard to define favourite things - there is just too much choice - but long-tailed tits do have a special place in my heart. They are such cheeky looking birds - I always enjoy my encounters with them. Today was particularly satisfying...

This is one of a pair I encountered this afternoon industriously collecting nesting materials. For the most part they stayed deep in the trees, and when they did venture out it was seldom in sunlight. So I was delighted when this bird settled here. It waited just long enough for me to squeeze off two shots - the second sadly has just a blur of wing...
