Eurasian blue tits (cyanistes caeruleus)
6

With two clutches of blue tits having recently fledged there are lots of the little birds posing in my garden here in England

The colours of their plumage will change as they moult.

Mama blue tit.
With two clutches now fledged there are now two adult females in the garden looking like this, displaying the ravages of parenthood.

Fortunately, once the fledglings are self sufficient, the adults soon regain their former glory.  And anyway I think she is rather beautiful.

Regards,
David
