This is great! I saw an old gangster movies I would say originated in the 40's and his face looks just exactly like one of the mobsters.......:) Love it....

Lovely shot Paul I always think these tiny birds pack a whole lot of attitude which makes them even more interesting:-)

Perfect!

Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in my garden in Lincolnshire, England.
Time
It was taken Mid-Afternoon.
Lighting
Lighting was dappled sunshine and shade.
Equipment
I used a `Fuji HS30EXR` camera, 30 x zoom, tripod mounted.
Inspiration
This little blue tit was happily singing away in my cherry tree when a sudden gust of wind ruffled his feathers and his overall song and appearance, giving him a `Punk Rock` image, like a small bird with a big attitude!
Editing
Slight sharpness and clarity adjustments along with colour enhancement where made to this photograph.
In my camera bag
I usually have a simple snap shot camera along with a bridge camera and various lenses.
Feedback
It can sometimes be quite difficult to get a decent in focus image of small fast moving birds. I have found that by switching a camera to the `Continuous` setting (as I did for this shot), you get multiple images in a row. That way you are more than likely to get at least one image which you are happy with rather than just taking one picture and missing the moment which will never return.
