Above you can see two photos of one and the same sparrow. I shot the photo during one of my hikes and I think it should be a female house sparrow. Sometimes I do find it very difficult to get the photo as the branches can be annoying, because you want the birds in focus and not too much branches in the foreground. Anyway, sometimes there is no other way and cropping can help a little to frame it better. I hope you like the photos. In case you are new to the blog and interested, you can find more bird photos on my site.
