Lonely little bird

Another shot to reflect the autumnal atmosphere

Autumn now is quite advanced and a lot of leaves are already fallen, like you can see on the picture.. But there are still enough bushes and trees with leaves for some pictures! The background colors here are given by the surrounding vegetation.
The little bird is I suppose a Sparrow.

Hi Anne. Nice to have you next door today. Your little bird looks like a Sparrow as you say. Autamn is moving in fast i see the leaves have all gone from this tree. Good detail and colours. TFS.

Have a good week ahead.

First of all, congratulation for your 15.000 points!
Second time, for this anniversary, you give us a great... little bird!

Anne, bonsoir.

Bravo pour la photographie de ce petit oiseau, un peu perdu dans les branchages, dépouillés de leurs feuilles.

Belle composition et agréable point de vue, montrant l'oiseau dans son élément (ce qui tranche un peu sur la plupart des photographies d'oiseaux, en gros plan). Belle netteté et bonne profondeur de champ. Les couleurs rendent bien compte de la saison : nous sommes en automne.

Merci pour le partage de ce moment.

A bientôt pour d'autres photographies

Slav Anne,
Very nice composition with splendid light,colors and perfect sharpness.TFS.

Finely a new image to add to an old old theme of mine..and why I love it is embedded in the title of the theme!

Hello Anne,

Strangely I took an image similar to this the other day, and I notice the colours look very much the same!
This is a different but effective depiction of the season, telling loudly autumn is here...

Hi Anne,
the little bird might be alone but she is not lonely. you were there to capture and render a very beautiful view of her. The branches gives a good graphical effect. The sharpness too is splendid with a nice soft greyish background.
Very pleasant presentation and the sense of size is really be seen and felt.

Hello Anne.
The leaves are gone.
Very well presented image with soft colors and clean background.
Greetings and TFS.

Yes, Ann, it is a sparrow.... and a cute one too.
A lot of detail portrayed CLEARLY.
The buds are still on the bush.
