Default Just a little Great Tit(?)

Just wanted to share a something in this great weather! We have warm weather (around 4-8 degrees C) and clear blue skye and sun!
Almost all snow has disappeared and some birds are coming out!

I think it is called Great Tit in english, not sure though...

Certainly looks like one ! Nice shot.

In China they are slightly different. They don't have the yellow breasts - here the breast is dirty white with a black stripe down the middle, but they are still Great Tits.

Hi Michael,

A very nice capture, especially in this lighting. I have a tendency to blow some of the whites and/or yellows in a shot like this. Looks like you and your Kx metered it very well.

Very nice job.

Scott

Very nice photo, of a very pretty bird. I assume it's a migratory specises that has recently returned, which must mean that spring is coming soon.

Thanks everyone!
Lisalonewolf: Yes, i realized afterwards that it was all fluffy and "fat" compared to how they usually look.

Snostorm: Yes, the camera and me are starting to get to know eachother now! I really like my KX of course, if I could afford it I would want the K5 with some fine lenses (like sigma EX 50-500, and perhaps a few * lenses...but for now this is what I have and I'll try to make the most of it

Mtnman: Well, it is a bird that can stay, but they usually don't here on my island, you might be happy finding one or two, but now when the spring is coming they tend to be alot more...

I will go out and try capture another bird today, a bird I haven't seen before, I'll do my best to capture it for you all

Looks a lot like a chickadee, are they a similar species?
