Hallo Paul,

nette foto van deze 2 jonge vogeltjes.
Mooie compositie en misschien als enig puntje de stam achter de rechte vogel.

Hello Paul,
I can see that the lighting was difficult, but this is a cute capture of a couple of House Sparrow fledgelings and in my opinion you managed the light very well. The pose and POV of these two young birds are excellent and the sharpness is perfect, which helps to make them stand out from the OOF natural BG.
This image deserves more credit and TFS!

Hi Paul,

How wonderful to capture these two little ones in one frame! There seem to be more baby sparrows around here this year than last. Beautiful colors and details of their faces and plummage. I love their eyes, yellow beaks, and that special look seen only on the young ones.
