Working for peanuts

I was watching the birds flocking around some feeders that are set up near to a hide. It was a very dull day and it was raining which was the main reason I ended up in the hide, just for shelter. I fired off a few frames and I really liked the painterly effect that I was lucky enough to capture when this Great Tit was just about to lift off with his peanut in his beak.

Which one shall I have?

  1. We have a couple of feeders fairly close to our kitchen window. Watching the aerial manoeuvrings as birds arrive and birds leave and birds jostle for space can keep me amused for quite a while. It’s frenetic at times. These capture that atmosphere so well, Frank
