I realize that i don't have the most exciting of personalities but when this barn sparrow yawned like this and i was still 30 ft away i realized that maybe the reason i have to use a 500mm lens to capture wild life is that they're scared of me trapping them in a conversation if i manage to get too close.

the blotch in the lower right is part of a fence. this was shot through a hole in the fence.

Very funny and I love the caption, Tom. Lovely and clear focus on the swallow. One can see his colouring beautifully. Swallows are such super birds. I can't wait for our summer when they are back again. Regards, Irmgard.
PS - Are you happy with your Sigma 50 -500 mm lens?

Look at the way he has his eyes looking like they are rolled up. An almost humorous pose he made for you. Nice time to click the shutter release....


I think this is a swallow; however, am not too sure.
Lovely register.
Very well presented.
Excellent composition.
Greetings from Mario.

Hi Tom,lovely singing bird with great pose and wonderful details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Amazing! Quels détails, quelles magnifiques couleurs.

bonjour Tom

j'aimes beaucoup les photos des oiseaux
leurs becs ouvert lançeant leurs cris ou chantant

la composition de cette photo-ci je la trouve meilleure
que celle de « Singing but no rain » (une photo avant celle-ci)



Very nice moment for take a photo.
Nice pov and colors.
