What a perfect harmonizing background happened to pass by here . . these birds always seem to have so much frantic energy to expend - firing on all neurons , I guess. Happy Sunday.

such a pretty bird, and an excellent capture again! love the sharp details, e.g. the lichen on the twig! (we don't have that many blue tits here, more great tits, the black variety - just as lovely!)
