Greetings friends!

Any journey has, in addition to the cognitive and moral component, the financial side of the issue.

Sometimes, it is difficult to calculate, and, in this case, they say in general - we are in the black, lol.

This is probably what they say when evaluating the benefits that birds bring, which they call the orderlies of the forest.

It is impossible to count the number of harmful larvae that one bird will destroy, the number of generations of insects that would appear if the bird had not eaten a beetle, or a caterpillar.

In addition, you need to take into account all the fruits that could be destroyed by pests, this is impossible to implement, economists and accountants are powerless here.

We can safely say that any bird brings invaluable benefits, but people have singled out some of them to build a pedestal of glory, if that is how you can express your thought.

A series of stamps Birds are the protector of the forest, issued in 1979 in the USSR, is unconditionally such a pedestal, or Oscar, for the best work in the field of pest control.

On the next postage stamp with a face value of 3 kopecks of the USSR, we see Crested Tit (Lophophanes cristatus).

If you read the information about this bird, then, you will be told that it is widespread throughout Europe, but, I saw it only a few times. As a rule, I see other members of the tit family.

But, last month my son was in the hospital and while walking I saw Crested Tit (Lophophanes cristatus) sitting in a tree and took some pictures.

This is a small bird and it sat high on a tree, as far as I could, I brought the bird closer to me.

Most of the time she was busy with something and constantly turned away from me.

Crested Tit (Lophophanes cristatus), the bird is not very bright, if you remove the bright colors, it will look exactly like the little Eurasian blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) that I photographed six years ago.

For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.
