DOF et framing, lovely smotthness of the composition,
excellent sharpness and details of the plumage,

Now that was an interesting read.You have a good pose, and the branch it is on compliments it with the textures.
In mornings when I would work outside, I made a call with a shrill whistle and these would call back, and get closer each time.
The key of whistle has to be right, or they do not call back.
It is either this one or a black capped chickadee...they look similar.blah blah....lol.
Hope you had a nice weekend.

You have selected a nice but very difficult for shooting contrast scene. However you have exposed image very well. I like impressive magnification, excellent details of the bird and branch, perfect POV and framing. However, it seems to me it would be better to correct lights and shadows and level of contrast a bit. TFS and best wishes.

Hello Angy, your picture is stunning, I love those birds and they arrived here last week. And isn't it strange that I don't know how they sing? They are mixed among the white-throated sparrows and the juncos and they all sing along. Your picture is beautiful and sharp, with a great background. I really like the few leaves in the background, it adds a nice touch. Thanks also for the most interesting notes, bye bye!

I love these little white crowned sparrows. They congregate around my feeder late every afternoon. They rarely pose like this - just go to the feeder and then hide under a bush. I don't think I've ever heard them sing. A nice shot showing off his white crown, yellow beak and pretty wings.

To sing or not to sing????Hey Angy,
This guys seems to be in a pensive mood..., so did you hear him sing...i would have loved to hear the song...these sparrows are so beautiful.isnt it...i love the chirpy house sparrows that are almost part of my family and here you are with your version of a singing sparrow....very good close -up although there's a slight noise the details are very well seen.The notes are quite informative.
Well done my dear
TFS & Cheers

A beautiful image too.
The colours are very natural and the light is great!
Sharp with good detail.
Superb composition too.

Good shot Angelina of this White Crowned Sparrow.
It's ironic that you posted it at this time, because I just watched a show earlier this morning on either National Geographic or Animal Planet channel that featured this little bird.
Very nice job. Great notes!
