a nice close-up the house sparrow
You must have been close since the DO is shallow.
Pretty sharp with details and fine POV.
Well done, young friend.

Great close portrait of a cock House Sparrow with fine sharpness of the beak and eye from a good POV. This is really a macro: you can't get any closer to a wild bird than this!
Thanks for sharing this fine original shot,

Hola Joe, mi fotografía la tome a unos 6 m. de distancia, desde mi vehículo y sin trípode. Está muy recortada.
Tu toma del gorrión , diferente a lo habitual por ese plano tan cercano, con un buen enfoque y colores y sorprendentes detalles en pico y plumas especialmente. Buen control de la iluminación.
Saludos: J. Ignasi

How much closer can you get? Wonderful shot - I love the seed in his mouth. The eye is marvelous - every feather stands out. Beautiful colors - superb details - perfect background.
These little twits are all over my yard and it seems they follow me all around town..I see them by the hundreds during the day, but they do NOT let me close enough to get a shot as clear as this...I would need a blind to hide from them and I'll bet they would know I was there anyway...Good show and yes I do remember the bird now!:-) Thanks Joey!

When I look at this shot ,I get the feeling the sparrow has stopped chewing as it notices you are so close,and the thought running through it's head is "what the heck is this guy up to?"
Wonderful POV and DOF.
This is a close up!
