Blue tit
Blue tit on a dead branch of our cherry tree, above the peanut feeder. The low winter sun and freshly trimmed hedgerow have been perfect for capturing birds visiting our feeders.

It's a telephoto zoom on maximum, but only 200 mm. It turns out that if I'm standing on the opposite side of the hedgerow from our feeders, the birds think I'm not there. I can get close enough to catch the little guys in some detail that way!
