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,
