Close to Home
Does my head look alright in this? (Sparrow Security System)
After a few weeks of no postings (due to DIY duties) Ithought I would show nshots of a member of a quite strong colony of House Sparrows at home.
For better view left click on picture and press F11.
The bird pictured emerged from its nest somewhere behind the mill stone over a garage door and then went into a nearby Buddleia bush swaying on the stems. It made for nice pictures in the bright light and I was fairly close to.
I am beginning to realise that I need to get closer to subjects, maybe a hide or camouflage suit is a good idea but seeing as nearly all my picture are taken on major reserves and walking with the wife not to practical. This is something I need to work on when you look at other sites and see the pictures are sometimes taken at full frame. How do they do that (I also been watching too much Peter Kaye)?
Hope you like the House Sparrow pictures, they look pretty sharp given the movement in the wind.
