[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A very rare albino sparrow that has visited our property since first out of the nest for over two months. This pose was pre-planned with a stake placed near the sunflower along with bird bath and feeding bowl and photographed after a lot of patience for the pose to take place.
This bird which we call "Powder Puff" is accepted by other sparrows as one of their own and mixes well with the group.

Hello Doug.
What a pure, beautiful white, contrasts well with yellow. Beautiful bird and sunflower.

Hello Doug,
A rare and beautiful sight capture of your albino passerine Powder Puff friend. The sunflower is a nice touch to the overall well exposed image. Well done.
Paul :)

Hallo Doug
You have delighted my eyes and my heart with this lovely, colourful image, jam packed with beauty and splendour. It is a warm and inviting image, and reminds me of summer. The colours of both the flower and the white sparrow is really striking. The crown of the sunflower is clear and prominent. This is my kind of photograph. Colourful, warm, unpretentious and pleasing to the eye. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
