Autumn arrived , Leafs are falling , birds are spotted better in the trees.. These little Blue Tit gave me the opportunity to make a few shots. Liked this one the most because of the eye contact I had....

Blu tit

When my PC came into focus the sharpnes and eye contact stroke me. Very good light. I live in Norway and we feed these birds all through the winter. We feed them aprox 60kg through the winter. They come early in the morning (dark) and during afternoon (dark). So it was nice to see the guy.
A winner.

Sorry to hear Fredrik that you only can see these beautiful little birds in the dark....
You say you feed them so you must have a feeding board ( like I do ....;-)) )
Why not make a garden light there ......?
They ( the birds) will get used to it in a few days and you can try shooting them also..
Sometimes I use flash , just set as 0.3 or max half the strength just to fill in ..
Also over here the weather is getting worst , less light , much rain , dark clouds ....
Wish you good light , and thanks for your comment....
It's much appreciated,
