Your patience really paid off on this one Yves. So beautiful in every detail and that delightful pose. Great shot!

Thank you Heather. I had a very good time playing with that bird. It is good to realise that after few years of shooting in nature there comes a time where you can predict the shot that is comming (and get it).

That song sparrow played hide and seek with me in the dense foliage of a blossom tree. I followed him for a while just by the slight move of some leaves, expecting the head to pop up. I finaly got rewarded. A moment to remember.
