Lurking in the shadows

Inverness-shire, Scotland


Taken at my new crestie site.  The blue tit is a beautiful little bird and a welcome sight adding a splash of colour.  As there was snow about I wanted to try capture as many of the forest birds before the snow melted with the strong sun out.  I love the way how the sun has illuminated it’s head while it was lurking about in the shadows.
