Hi Mario,
Excellent shot! Very sharp and clear details.
great composition, nice background.
Well done!

Hello Mario
Brilliant light on this sparrow, crisp focus, soft background, great color and POV. TFS.

Good job on capturing the sparrow Mario. Looks like he's smiling at you. Nice sharp features...great focus!

What a clear sharp view of this little guy, I have some of these who like to sit on the mirrors on my school bus and look at themselves. Rather entertaining, yet they leave quite a mess. I love how sharp and clear all the details in his feathers are, well done.
