Nice Harry,
Real cuties!

I was born in Oakland, California, USA. The pimps there all drove ridiculously decorated Cadillac
Eldoroados and dressed like cartoon characters.

Beautiful indeed... They're all looking really cute...
Where's the mom? Did you take these pictures all by yourself?

Hello Ed,
The Dutch name for this little bird is "Pimpelmees", so with a wink I name them pimps.

Hello Adam, the latin name is Cyanistes caeruleus (formerly: Parus caeruleus). Yes, I took these pictures myself and here is mom (or is it dad? They both feed)

Hi Harry,

I supposed you see them almost all the time.
You can get a photo of them so easily.
Are these your pets? :)

Adam,
They are not that rare here, but it was not really easy to make this pictures.
Ofcourse I was lucky to see them fly out for the first time.
Harry

That’s cool Harry.
I can imagine how hard it is to take pictures of them because they move really quickly.
