While I was at the pond shooting trumpeter swans (see other post), I had a little white-throated sparrow that apparently became jealous of all the attention given to the swans. That must be the case because he flew up and posed on the top of a fence right at the minimum focusing distance for my Bigma, no more than ten feet away from me. These are full-frame shots with no cropping.



Once I got my photos, he was ready to leave

Paul, those are really top notch. Some of your best yet. Very nice and perfect color balance and exposure too.
Happy Holidays,
Steve

That's my favorite little sparrow. Don't you love his mellow song?
