Wonderful detail and spot on focus in all of these Socrate with # 1 being tops for me for the lovey colors and tones and the patterns of the feathers. It seems you were shooting into challenging backgrounds in some of these but the birds still stand out well from them.

Thanks, Martin. They were perching on a citrus tree and was hard to get a less busy bg

Socrate- these are all really excellent images of spectacular little birds.
And no bird ever had a better name than the tufted titmouse- except perhaps the laughing jackass bird from Down Under .

Thanks, Charlie. Your comments made me lough

I love these little birds which are also called the Scaly Breasted Mannikin (or Munia) and I had one pass through my garden (in Shanghai) a month earlier (they are native to Asia).

I saw the very closely related White Rumped Munia (or Mannikin) for the first time in Wulingyuan, Hunan, China about a month ago when a pair alighted less than a metre from my face whilst I was stalking a Forktail. Delightful experience but too close for the 500mm - not that I could move an inch anyway !

Most people don't realise how tiny these finches are (thumb sized, ca. 10-12cm) ! I guess your first shot is 3 or 4 times life-size !

All beautiful shots but #1 is just superb !!

Thanks for your kind words These little cute birds visit my backyard regularly. When I saw the first one in 2005 I thought "What in the H is this?" Now they are very common. They seem to be happy birds from what I see. Never fighting for food and always willing to share with the others
