Hello Jane,
A superb capture of the Black-throated Sparrow.
This is well composed, sharp, with fine blue sky BG and good lighting, even though there is no catchlight in the eye due to the angle of the head.
Very nice shot!
TFS and have a good week!

Hello Jane,
Excellent capture of the profile of this little Sparrow. Very sharp details and pleasing natural colours. I like the framing of the leaves as well which makes the composition very attractive.
TFS and regards, Ulla

This sparrow is definitely unique by way of its main features, Jane. Its face in particular is well marked by those white stripes.
A well composed picture from a very good perspective.

Hi, Jane.
Nice shot. Good composition and colors.

Hi Jane,
I think the greatest strengths of this photo are composition and perfect exposure. Beautiful blue sky and nice detail. The is a tiny bit of noise which I removed in workshop. I hope you like the results.
