Woodpecker vs Blue Tit

This little blue tit never stood a chance at the nut feeder when faced with a much larger great spotted woodpecker.  However, on the plus side the blue tit did make for a nice shape and background to this shot.

Osprey Vs Fish?

Clearly in this case the fish lost out, but only after several attempts.  The last place I thought I would ever witness an osprey in action would be at a reservoir near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.  I hoped when I last visited Scotland to enjoy a similar experience, but with no success.  However, this juvenile osprey appeared approx. 2 weeks ago and has been entertaining the masses with its fearless, fast plunges into the water in an attempt to catch some lunch.  I would of course have liked the shots to be sharper, but the ambient lighting was relatively poor.
