Male House Sparrow...playing with light

In these two images that I captured while out at my second job gardening. I captured this Male house sparrow singing on a wire just over the property. It's the same bird but with a different perspective while playing with light. I carefully watched him and the light to see if I could capture a more dynamic view of's interesting when you compare both pictures just how important light can be for your subject matter. I personally prefer this shot over the frontal you get more color details and a softness of the profile rather than the harsh frontal. What do you think?


  1. Ahh one species I know quite well & definitely more interesting colours from the rear Crista.

  2. ...I like this photo. He looks very sweet here with his head slightly fluffed. These birds are always happy...
