This was the only shot I could take of this guy. When I thought I'd have the chance to take another, it flew away.

It was a scorching day when I took the picture. The shot was taken in the morning, at 9:25am.

The original file is a RAW one.

Hi Livio,
Very good image of this little wet buddie!
I like so much the color saturation of the picture, the background has a vivid golden tone.
The wet feathers on the bird makes him looks so fragile.
I like also the composition made, with the bird placed just in the center of interest.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Wonderful capture, super colour and detail, well caught.

Hello Livios,
I like those tones of colors here and this exposure. I wish it could have been cropped a little closer but it is non less, a beautiful capture of this Sparrow. I wonder what is so orange here... Thanks,

Hello Livio , A Very cute shot from this bird ,good pose heldere colours very good ,Greetings Teunie .

Hi Livio,
The bird looks cute with its thoroughly wet wings.
The little guy was cooling himself off in the water, apparently.
Great image, indeed.
The golden yellow colour of the earth makes an interesting background here.

Hi Livio

Another beautiful shot from you...and also a very funny one :))
The wet-hair look is back in fashion? Cool! ;))
Loely pose and composition here with excellent contrast between the little sparrow and everything around it.
Outstanding sharpness and vivid colors, too

Bravo and TFS

Livios Parabéns ótima foto.
Lindo este contraste da agua limpida com a areia e estas pequenas pedras em seu fundo.
enquanto ao passaro ele nos transmite a nitida sensação de frescor.
abraços henrique

Hello Livio!
Very interesting presentation, not only beacuse of fantasting timing :)
I am alsow very interested in one "detail". It this a Passer domesticus? Or maybe any similar species? I know that P. domesticus, natuve to Europe, was already introduced to A America, Austraria and Asia, but it looks that it is known from S America too (but I did not know it :>).

Hi Livio

What a very wet sparrow. I enjoy watching them having a bath. The water goes everywhere. Very well seen and taken. :-)
