[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I used my 10X lens fully extended in VGA quality to take this shot. You'll see some noise as a result of that. Still; I was happy to get as close. I was following a town road and stopping at fence posts to snap pictures of these White Throated Sparrows. I suspect they were nesting at the base of the posts because they would try to lead me a way from them.

Hello Trevor,
This is a good shot. Yes, I do see a litte noise but not to much. He stands out well against the BG.

Hello Trevor

The details of this sparrow are excellent,
in the last years I learned to zoom less
have the bird from far or less bigger
and not too loose on image quality, TFS

A real beauty Trevor,
Your 10x lens makes it look like you were right on top of him. Love the unique markings it has in it's plumage and beautiful coloration. The slight bit of noise can easily be removed in Neat Image. Well done!!

Nice capture with the whole bird on the focus plane, Trevor. Excellent plumage details and beautifully silenced background in this composition.

Hello Trevor,
Good side view of this bird, great use of light.
perfect sharpness and colour.
best wishes,

Ciao Trevor, great capture of lovely nird in nice pose on beautiful blurry BG, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
