Hello to all,
Today this sparrow. I hid in the car because to me they are very wild, then I waited! And it is the only one who approached.

Having seen that of Sebnem and Victor in this site, I had envis to reproduce her(it) because that pleased me a lot.

What a cute pose for this little one caught taking a bath. Looks like it might be alittle modest. :)

Great capture,

Excellente prise Arnaud, j'aime bien le flou pour le fond, beaux détails


Hi Arnaud,

A good pose, composition and timing in this image but the focus seems a little soft and there seems to be over-exposure on the subject perhaps a higher shutter speed could also bring out more details.

Well done & TFS.

Salut Arnaud,
C'est une très belle capture de ce petit moineau tout joyeux de barboter. J'aime bien les petites gouttes d'eau en arrière-plan ainsi que les détails que tu as captés sur l'oiseau. Je crois que ce dernier est un petit peu sur-exposé; j'imagine qu'avec PP, il serait facile d'aujster le tout. J'aime aussi cette composition et prise de vue. Merci de ce sympatique moment :)

Quel merveilleux moment vous avez capté là,bien net,fines couleurs. Thomas

Bonjour Arnaud,
very cute shot of this bather, not often we get to witness such an event in the wild. Well done on the capture. Great details and movement, specially the water spray around the bird.
