Song Sparrow

Though the sparrow is partially hidden in the huckleberry bush and some of the colors of the bush are bleeding on the wings, I liked the colors and background and the sparrow does have a berry in its mouth to draw some attention that direction.

Hello, Allen, great shot you have here - I am a fan of this kind of shooting: partly obscured subjects, through-foliage shooting etc. The colors are matching in a wonderful way. Well done ! Cheers, Hans

Excellent color, light and DOF. Enjoyable pose and berry. Can’t think of any nits here.

This is very cool, Allen. I love the out of focus foreground and the way the bird floats in it.Nice detail and head turn and the berry is a great bonus.
