I am always amazed at how big the juveniles get before they quit feeding them. Nice capture.

@henrir Thank you Henri as I said to Lou Ann they stay with their parents for a few weeks after they can fly,
this is a dangerous time for the young birds they need to learn how to find food and avoid predators quickly if they are going to survive:)

@onewing Thank you Babs Blue Tits may lay up to 16 eggs, but the majority of clutches contain 8-12. Each chick can eat 100 caterpillars
a day, so adults need to find as many as 1000 caterpillars a day for a brood of 10! OMG:)
