Thanks for your comments everyone, it's much appreciated.

These are fascinating little birds, I love the way they travel around in little
groups (when they are not in the breeding season). They are quite fearless at the peanut feeder and
think nothing of chasing off their larger cousins.

Tony:

Sweet little bird, cute/coy pose, nice catchlight. The background is well light and pleasant.

I might consider darkening the broken off end of the perch so it fades into the background a bit.

Cheers

Delicious as my daughter would say.

Lovely shot and beautiful birdie
