Hi Rathika,
A very fine capture depicting the feeding scene...sparrows are one of my favourite birds for the proximity they offer to city folks like us to shoot.I have n'ver seen a scene as this in such close range.The difference between the adult and juvenile seem to come out excellently in this PoV.
Thanks for sharing


A prize action picture of a dad Sparrow feeding the little one, Rathika.
Who says males have no maternal sense of nurturing and preserving life??
I see you shot this image way back in April this year.
Coming from you, the image is technically outstanding as usual.
Thanks for sharing this rare moment perpetuated for posterity through this powerful image.

Hi Rathika,
A good close in shot of the father sparrow feeding its young.
You got a very clear image which shows the behaviour very well.
Well done.

Hello Rathika,
What a tender loving moment you have captured so superbly. Thank you Rathika.

Ciao Rathika,
meraviglioso momento di cattura, eccellenti POV e composizione molto stretta su questo bellissimo rapporto di cure parentali con uno stuppendo BG, straordinaria definizione dei dettagli. Un'immagine super.
