[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I remember as I was about to click the shutter on this cute little Chipping Sparrow it cocked it's head ever so slightly, as if listening to some unknown sound not heard by my human ears.

I love their beautiful rufous colored caps and black eye stripe, as well as their slate black beaks. Their unique song is a methodical run of evenly spaced chips, which is quite pleasant to hear.

Very cute attitude caught, vivid and very artistic shot with a marvellous background.

Hi Ron,
Absolutely beautiful image. Very impressive background color contrast and of course a nice, sharp subject in interesting pose. Despite of the little blown out part around the neck, a beautiful shot. And you were so shy to tell in the note this is your 600th upload. :-) Huge congratulations, both for the nice photo and for reaching the milestone.
Best regrds, László

Yes, cute and beautiful it truly is. Superb brightness, lovely colours and excellent bokeh. Most striking within that milieu is the sharpness of detail and the good composition. Sheer pleasure to view. Well done.
