Hi everyone,
a quick one from the archives today, this is from my holiday in Bahrain back in April. I'm not sure what sort of bird this is, but it was taken at Al Areen Wildlife Park near the Bahrain International Circuit. It's a shame the head is in shadow, but I still like this one.
Resized for upload.
Cheers, John.

Hi John. Good shot of a difficult subject, good sharpness and colours. I consider anything that can walk or fly away to be difficult subject.

Regards Phil.

Hi John,
Very nice close up shot of this thirsty bird. The light is good and the detail in the scene is nice as well. Excellent capture of the color and markings in his feathers. Nice work.

Hi John,
Great capture of this thirsty little Sparrow, nice sharpness and colours, good POV.
Well done
Regards Andy

Hi John
What a wonderful pov - fills the frame nicely and is not a common shot we see every day!
Lovely colours on the featheres and detail on the foot - your blurry bg works well here too

Hi John, I was trawling through my archives yesterday and I found this one, I knew I had not taken it but I knew it must have been you or Tom who had left it in my files. It is a great photo, I don't think the slight shadow on the head detracts from the photo at all.
Good one, Dad

Nice shot of the sparrow drinking - always a good thing to see natural behaviours of birds. A good composition (although I think the bird gets the credit for creating the diagonal line!) and nice colours and details.
Thanks for sharing

Hi John .looks like a spadger to me!! good little sparrow.. you got the colours and details well.

regards h

Hello John

What an adorable shot, this just oozes character, small shap his eye is not a tad brighter but overall a lovely sharp shot and a very original POV.

TFS regards Helen
