[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've often read that population of sparrows in many countries decrease very fast. About my home in that time were a lot of sparrows. Lately next to my windows I see almost every day less and less this species and now I think there left only a few. I don't know what caused such fast decrease.

Sin duda es una toma "viva" y con buenos colores, aunque parece algo difuminado, supongo que por la máscara de enfoque... Bien encuadrada.
Saludos Pawel: Josep Ignasi.

Very fine image and thoughtful too. Sparrows depend on us and we have changed our life style which affected the sparrows very much, they mainly feed on scattered grains which these days becoming rare, at least in the cities. tfs.

Witaj Pawle!

No proszęjakimalowniczy może być wróbel. Uchwycony na ładnym wiosennym tle robi wrażenie

Hi Pawel.
Lovely sparrow shot. Especially I like scene at whole, impressive BG and superb diagonal composition. Pictured individual is very cute and all its features are shown perfectly. It is a true 3D-image.

Population of sparrows is a normal state. I am glad with this.
My best wishes and TFS.

Witaj Pawel,

Very pretty sparrow shot. Plenty of details, great sharpness, nicely blurred background. I especially like Your POV and his pose, beside the soft natural colors. Elegant job MF. Congrats and tfs.

I also don't know why the sparrow populity is decreasing so fast. To tell the truth I've heard about this here on TN, but will search on the local ornithologic sites if there's any deeper info about this.

Friendly regards, Wladyslaw
