It seems your household ran out of color today, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: The entire world seems to being running out of color these days, Ray. You have to go look for it.

Beautiful graphic detail in its tail plumage! Excellent tones as well. Stay safe, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir, on both accounts.
I really LOVE this image, Ginnie! Nice processing!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, dear Elizabeth.

Unique. I'd like to know what he's thinking or preying..what a great capture! Very pretty composite!
Ginnie Hart: Don't you wonder what ANY of the creatures are thinking these days, Bonnie! Indeed. Thank you.
a most welcome visitor, Ginnie. i like the creative feel of the blurry, runny black water colour treatment applied to this image
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. I was happy to find a filter that felt like what's going on these days.

That came out perfect, Ginnie. I so like the movement of that little bird. Those birds never sit still, they are so much fun to watch. Hopefully after their new house is ready we will see more of them.....
Ginnie Hart: I LOVE that they have found your treats, Astrid, and can hardly wait to see how they will soon find the house you're building for them. They'll be in heaven!
There's a lot of softness in the treatment of this black and white. Have a good week Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Softness midst the storm. We all need to find it, Marie. Merci.

Maybe there are baby beaks to feed?
Ginnie Hart: Maybe, Chris. But you wouldn't know it by watching them. They eat frantically, like they'll never see food again anywhere.

It looks like a painting - fascinating treatment. The tits are also frequenting my balcony to feed their little ones?
Ginnie Hart: Astrid read that Gorinchem has the biggest population of Great Tits here in the Netherlands, Philine. I wonder why?! So glad you have them there where you are as well.
Wouah ...magnifique photo !
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine.

Nicely caught, Ginnie. It is like a soft pencil drawing
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lisl. The filter I used is call "Newspaper Print."

I think ain these troubled times any of us are taking comfort from the joys of nature around us. Without the road of traffic, bird sone is one of the few noises in the air now and is a joy. I hope your Great Tit gets rewarded for its efforts.
Ginnie Hart: Astrid is so thrilled by these Great Tits, Alan, that she's building a bigger and better bird feeder that will allow several to eat at one time. I can hardly wait to see it!
I like the treatment Ginnie. They are delightful birds
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill, and they really are! Gorinchem supposedly has the biggest congregation of them in all the Netherlands (for some strange reason).
Wat een mooie bewerking van dit acrobatische koolmeesje
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love the idea of that, Marjolein. smile Bedankt.

You’ve made a friend Ginnie. Do you feed it?
Ginnie Hart: Astrid does, Chad. And now she's building a bigger feeder so that more can come and dine at the same time! smile

een wel heel verrassende foto van deze acrobatische bezoeker Ginnie...

have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: It was a surprise for me, too, Willy. Bedankt.
Oh, j'aime beaucoup le traitement, cela offre une image très sympa.
Bravo Ginnie
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale.
He is shaking off Monday and will Tweet on Tuesday.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm sure you're right, Care.
Wow, I like your new roleplay!
So you're a Mother H̶e̶n̶ Tit now?
Ginnie Hart: You can fool some of the people some of the time, LC, but not all the people all the time. smile
Ha ha... It didn't work.
I was trying to strike through the word "Hen" above. But you get the joke!
Ginnie Hart: HAHA. Actually, Astrid is the Mother Hen these days. You should see the bird feeder she just made to attract more of these birds to our balcony!

Great action in this blurry picture. I wonder who named a bird a tit; probably the same person who named a male chicken.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Louis. I often wonder where names come from! smile
This is a really pleasant picture Ginnie, I like the treatment you've given it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Brian.
What a sweet image! Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ruthie.

Ginnie, this is just breathe taking. I love the black and white and the soft blur. Beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Beth. THANK YOU.
i love the way that you turned the photo into a painting of the Tit Ginnie.....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. I really didn't like the original at all and needed to "fix" it somehow. This seemed better.
