    A Tufted Titmouse from our time in S. Texas.

    They proved to be quite dodgy. Thankful to get a few shots with this one before it made off with some seeds.

    R5
    600mm
    Tripod
    ISO 2500
    1/1600
    f4.5

    LR and PS. Stamped a couple small, odd spots on the stump.

    Black-crested Titmouse! Used to be considered a subspecies of Tufted but was elevated to its own full species a few years ago. They can be tough since they tend to fly in, grab a seed, and split!

    Regardless, this is a really nice image. Pose, head angle, and detail are excellent, and I like the OOF bits behind the stump as it adds context and suggests the shot less set-up than it probably is.

    Thank you Dorian. I definitely did not know this! Should have titled it "Cresty" or smth instead ;-)

    I like it! This little fella chose the perfect spot to place its feet on, and the subtle glance-back head angle is perfect. Perfect gnarly perch - glad you made it even better in post.

    Hi Brian ... a bit late , but stil worth to comment .
    The head turn really makes this a nice keeper .
    Everything does look nicely done in capture and post , i would just change two things .... burning the perch and removing the plant in LLC . See this as an option not a must do .
    LOve the colors and the smooth BG

    TFS Andreas
