Hello friends, i would love to have
a better focusing and sharpness
my little camera did his best

With that camera i can not choose
the shutter speed and aperture,
what we see here is from the camera

from the All About Birds website

« House Sparrows are noisy sparrows
that flutter down from eaves and
fencerows to hop and peck at crumbs
or birdseed. Look for them flying in
and out of nest holes hidden behind shop
signs or in traffic lights, or hanging
around parking lots waiting for crumbs
and picking insects off car grills. »

Hi Asbed,

Its very difficult so small subject to panning.
Overall an good image.

Hello Asbed,
Though not perfectly sharp, the good aspects of this shot are the lighting and colours, the male sparrow being caught just at the right moment with the light-coloured patch of greenery in the BG showing him up with superb colour contrast. This, together with the composition make the image appealing.
Thanks and best regards,

Hallo Asbed,

Hello Asbed,
Although the sharpness is not excellent, this is a beautiful photo in very fine natural colours. Beautiful contrasts in the green and browns.

Hi Asbed,
very nice dynamic photo. Excellent point of view. Amazing colours. Specific atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Asbed,

Hello Asbed
Beautiful photo with impressive movement effect. The colours are wonderful.

Bonjour Asbed,

Le flou de l'arrière-plan met en évidence l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du moineau domestique en vol. La caméra que tu utilises, a crée un léger manque de netteté. La liumière a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
