I was in the park, looking for this sparrow to settle down so I could get it in range and immobile. I was lucky that it landed on a log about10 feet away and kept still just long enough for me to trip the shutter. Note the two different colours of the beak. Cheers, Dan

Hey Dan,

You made a very nice capture of the little Sparrow and you've got him framed just about perfectly. Very good job..

Great close up Dan. These little fellahs are so twitchy, it's often hard to focus on them fast enough. This is a very sharp capture. Well done.

Beautiful portrait Dan. I love the simple border you choose. It really compliments the bird.
Nice job.

Thanks all,

I used a Nikor 70-200 VR with a Nikor 1.7X extender on my D50. I wish all my subjects stayed as still - if only for the right moment.

Cheers, Dan
