For health reasons I will be taking a break for a while, leaving you with a bird hiding behind some leaves. This image always makes me smile, so I hope it also makes you smile. I will miss you all, but will return as soon as I am able, but if I'm not back before Christmas, I wish you and your families good health, and happiness, and a New Year full of love, lots of love, and joyous moments to cherish.

To my right was this beautiful coloured tree, so I had to take a photo.

Coal Tits are one of my favourite birds to photograph, They are a small bird, just 11.5 cm in length,with a wing span of 17. 21 cm, and it's the only bird that has fed out of my hand. It was one of those unforgettable moments that I was privileged to experience. It felt weightless, but in fact it weighs about 8 g, I see them in all kinds of weather, because I feed them nuts and seeds, just like the other Tits which also come for food. Here are a few captures of one I took last week.

The mornings are chilly, but after lunch it begins to warm up. It's sunny, with blue skies, and a very pleasant temperature. My daughter Eva and I decided to go by car to the park, enjoy some fresh air and catch up with our news whilst we walked around the park and hopefully I would see something of interest to photograph. It's a large park, with many paths, It is named after Sara Moreira, a 300 metre Portuguese athlete from Santo Tirso. We had a long walk, and I took lots of photographs.
