What an awesome shot you have here under the most difficult of conditions. The detail and clarity are amazing, well done.

Yves Langlois

Thanks Clifford. The little guy always gives me a exciting chasing adventure. Nature photography includes a part of luck but the experience and learning finaly keeps that hazard to the required minimum.

Very challenging shot to get and your focus is spot on Yves. The sparrow stands out so beautifully here against a complex array of tones and detail. An excellent capture of one of my favorite sparrows.

Yves Langlois

Thank you very much Heather. Specialy like the fawn colour of the wings and the chasing chalenge.

Debra Plett

Wonderful shot of this very cute sparrow. I like how he is nestled beside some yellow moss. Lots of interesting texture and colour. Nice sharp focus and composition Yves.

Yves Langlois

Thanks Debra. Agree with you - lots of texture to show the hability to blend in. No choice, this is a manual focussing - a nightmare, never sure of the result.

Encounter with the white-throated sparrow is always a joyful moment and a chalenge. The nice colour desing I like is a perfect camouflage for that bird who spend most of its time walking on the ground, through thick bushes and brown leaves. Totaly invisible if he doesn't move. Having the guy in an acceptable shooting zone and getting a sharp focus is the chalenge.
