Equality of the sexes
House Sparrows (male and female)
Passer domesticus

One hundred House Sparrows were introduced into Brooklyn in the fall of 1851 and the spring of 1852.
From this initial introduction, the species expanded throughout the eastern United States and Canada.
Aided by transplants from established populations and additional introductions from Europe (for example, into San Francisco and Salt Lake City in 1873-1874), the species now ranges from central and northeastern British Columbia to the James Bay and south to Panama.

I took several photos before creating this humble assembly.
I know that the WS is better but I had the title in my mind since several days and I found two photos showing my purpose.
So it is done now. I am released from this title.

Thank you for looking.

Not only are the photos good, the composition and title are great. Great job to make this combined shot.

Well presented Luc,
Both shots are well composed. the detail is clear and sharp. Good colours and DOF.
The WS post is also very very good.
Thanks for posting

Une belle composition Luc, très bonne idée de réunir ces deux photos en une.
Bravo !

Ce Luc nous surprend toujours ! Excellente idée cette comparaison mâle/femelle de moineaux grâce à ce photo-montage de qualité. Le titre est bien vu aussi...

Super la présentation, du jamais vue, excellent travail Luc
Amicalement Christophe

Nice composition Luc. Excellent presentation. Awesome to view. No nits. I do agree the workshop is better, but I do like this too. Good work as always. Thanks.

Hi Luc, excelent presentation of both sexes. Well done on the composition of compositions.
The house sparrow no longer exists here. Interesting eh?


What a lovely idea, to bring both the male and female into the scene and show them off, Luc!
An excellent presentation, well captured and politically correct. :-D)
Your ws is visually more pleasing and brings a smile to my face.
Thank you for so many wonderful options!

Bravo pour les trois photos, Luc. Personnellement, je trouve le ws amusant, et cela aurait pu faire le sujet lui-même. Par contre l'idée de mettre face-à-face le mâle et la femelle est excellente, d'autant plus qu'ils occupent la même position. Vous avez dû avoir pas mal de patience pour y arriver. La photo me semble un peu surexposée, non?
Bien réalisé, Luc.

Great presentation Luc, I like what you've done with the two sexes faced-off in an almost confrontational manner..Good details, colors and light, Very good job with this!

Very nice composition,POV and DOF... love the way you mirrored the two... amazed that you caught such similar poses from the two birds. The WS really enhances a beautiful photo.
