Small bird, big world

It's for sure an inconspicuous picture, but I think that this kind of shots also can generate some emotions by showing the fragility of creatures in nature, especially in harder times like winter here. Almost no snow around because it disappeared very quickly due to strong rain.
The little bird is a simple House-sparrow, one of a whole colony in our surroundings.

Ciao Anne. Lonely small one into the wild environmnet. Nice capture.


Ciao Anne, lovely little bird in nice pose on a beautiful blurry BG, fine details, wonderful natural colors and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

I love that shot Anne. I really do! The dark muted colors in this frame generate strange feelings in me. The warm bright days are gone, and there is not mush to do except preparing for the cold months ahead. The little chicks are gone as well to deal with the challenges of the unknown coming winter. Seems that the last few leafs are loosing their grip. Soon they will become a part of the endless Circle of life.

Very very nice.
Thanks for sharing.
hello Vanni

Hi Anne
Beautiful scene and beautiful photo with good composition and wonderful colours.
Regards, Christodoulos.

bonjour Anne

les photos d'oiseaux en close-up sont certainement
des photos a dire parfois « WOW » mais pour dire
la vérité moi j'aimes plus les photos comme celle-ci
où avec l'oiseau on voit également son environement,
on devrait voir plus souvent des photos comme celle-ci,


p.s. hier je navigais sur TN et j'ai vu cette photo

Ciao Anne.
Bella foto che racchiude tutti icolori autunnali,bella anche la composizione. Codivido quello che hai scritto nelle nota.
Brava alla prossima foto ciao Marco

Hello Anne,
Superb capture of this little bird (female House Sparow) who is resting for a moment in this big world. Nice capture with great colours and good details.

Hello Anne,
Very nice photo in a great atmosphere. The colours match perfectly. Excellent sharpness and a very good choice of composition.

Hello Anne.
I like the Oriental style presentation in this fine bird shot. The perch and a few leaves and loose twigs are just amazing in the frame.
Well crafted image and thanks for sharing.
Kind regards - Jusni

Bonjour Anne (voisine d'un jour),
Je ne sais pas si c'est vraiment ce que tu voulais restituer mais, pour ma part, il ressort de ta publication beaucoup de fragilité et d'humilité.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Anne,
very quiet situation and the cold may effect the bird. Shown in a well represented weather.
The softness of the capture, and the gloomy view tells the story fro this quiet bird.
A nice work.


Hola Anne

Agradable composición de este peueño ave, con su mirada perdida, sin perctarse de lo estas fotografiando. Buenos contrastes y POV excelente.

Un saludo de Antonio

Yes, this is beautiful in its own right, the colors are very interesting, I felt the bottom right corner is too cluttered with branches and I did one ws, hope you don't mind. tfs.
