Hello David,

Hope you are doing fine and nice to meet you friend, for we are meeting for the first time here on TN if I remember well.
This is an excellent photo of this male house sparrow. Let me admit that your birds have more reddish head and wings feathers than the males of our region. These are beautiful birds no matter what the colour variation.The head here seems more focused than the rest of the body parts of the bird but it still makes it a marvellous photo, one which I always love to look at.A great effort in my view.
Thanks a lot for sharing and thanks for your comments on my little sparrow....till we meet again, keep posting.....take care .....warmest regards/Abid

The completeness and fragility.
In this image, the POV that rewards expression.
Sharpness and color.

Wow great closeups!! Would love to capture them as well, its difficult with the little ones; they flit and fly so fast! This is great, would love to see just a little more clarity in the eye..yet so lovely indeed

I added a workshop, hope you like it! :0)
