This is a 'cool' shot..... we have not seen any show here in this part of England yet but would love to soon. Great sharpness and feather detail on this one and it was kind of your model to turn to theright for you to get a nice all round shot.

Wow, that shot is very sharp and detailed. You must have been very close to him. I've tried taking sparrow shots with my 300mm lenses, but it is very hard to get close enough for a decent shot. Well done!

Thank you for the nice comment.

I have a hunting blind setup near the feeder (cabelas 4 seasons popup blind $189.00) Sets up in a matter of seconds. The use of the blind is the only way I have ever been able to get close to sparrows, they usually bolt as I walk into the yard, it gives great opportunity for other subjects also. I even wear a camo mask to tone down the reflections off my face and camo gloves on my hands too, and a camo stalking cap, it is cold out there. The blind has 8 windows and I can open or close whichever ones I choose, and also has camo screens to place on the windows. the inside of the blind is black, and as long as I dont have a open window behind me, they dont see me..so Im crazy LOL..a friend uses a washing machine cardboard box that the washer was packed in and has a hole cut in the cardboard, simplicity and cost..well nothing..LOL.. Cheers!
