Blue Tit on Take Off

I've been trying to catch more birds in the air - never easy! But I've noticed that lots of small birds often have their wings folded, especially on take off. They seem to spring into the air, only opening their wings when they need lift. Same goes for when they're actually in flight - they tuck in their wings until they need them.
