Great shot. Love the expression and the detail you were able to capture in this shot. Nicely done Heather

Thank you Clifford, always appreciated. He was a messy eater and left suet crumbs all over the place but gave me some nice poses in return. What I liked best was that he seemed quite comfortable in my presence.

Very pretty capture Heather. Terrific focus and depth of field, the sparrow floats in front of the background. Nice detail in that fluffy little bird. Well done.

Thank you Debra, always appreciated. I like a clean background for portrait shots like this but that seldom ever happens. The lawn worked perfectly for this one.

One of the White-crowns who nest nearby each summer. These cute birds are ground feeders and do a mean chicken scratch. They're always fun to watch and can become quite tame if there are feeders handy.
