Oh wow this is a great photo! It looks like a painting! I love coal tits, have plenty in the garden and they are one of my favourite visitors to the feeders but I've never came close to getting a photo as good as this one!

it's amazing how similar the coal tit is to the Carolina Chickadee. The coloration is almost identical! though the beak shape varies slightly. Kind of reminds me of darwin's bird studies. :D
great shot! I love the colors.
