Coal Tit and the Black-throated Tit. Two small and fidgety birds that I had never really had managed to get good images of till a few weeks back. They are usually in flocks, stay close together, are extremely twitchy and make it an infuriating habit (for us I mean) of picking the most cluttered branches to perch on. A combination of all of these make it difficult to isolate them and get a nice clean background.
It had been close to 3 years and nearly a dozen trips before I got lucky. Or maybe they just took pity on me and decided to give me that 2-sec break that I so desperately needed – and they even made it all the more easier by choosing the same perch as well. Whichever it is, I am glad that I have got these two out of the way.
