I was out getting to grips with manual focus on Sunday afternoon. Conditions were bright, which was good as I was still without my tripod, holding the big zoom lens by hand and lurking beneath tree and hedge cover.
I managed to stalk this blue tit beneath a row of damson trees/bushes on nearby allotments.
This narrow avenue between the damsons and the hedge bordering the road gave some really good cover where I also managed to photograph another bird which I will blog separately as I'm not sure of it's identity.
The blue tit looked to be feeding in the blossoms which were out in abundance.
Although, this one was most definitely collecting nest materials.
