[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

This pair of sparrows are apparently talking about How one of them lost one of the toes.
Only through the magic of photography is possible to observe these small details that the eye is easily missed.

Thanks for looking at this image, I had to use an f/11 to get both little birds in focus..
