[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A few days ago, this bird ("dark-eye-Junco" or sparrow ? I don't know what kind) landed on the fence outside of my office window informing the cold and raining coming.

Two days later, he came back singing when the sun was out. I will post that photo tomorrow.

This photo was taken from inside thru the tinted window

Thanks for stopping by

Hi, Hein Vy. Nice capture of this beautiful Junco Sparrow profile with good depth of field, colors and sharpness. The eye is very sharp and looking forwatrd to your next post of the same bird. Cheers and TFS.

Hello LS HV!

This is an excellent composition! The beautifully matched frame shows very well! Great DOF and sharpness!

I'm anticipating spring; I've never photographed a bird in the wild, but hope to soon. :)

A good weekend to you my LS!

Very very nice, Hien, I love birds - and this one is beautiful. We don't have this specimen here in Germany, so I can't help with the name - anyway it's lovely, thanks

Little bird is such pretty and sweet.
Miraculous composition, splendid colours and light.

Bonsoir Hien

Très jolie macro de ce moineau avec son oeil vert!!
J'aime beaucoup les tons nuancés et la présentation!!

Hi Hien,

What a lovely side glance the bird has. The sharp profile is well captured, the smooth noiseless background provides a good medium. Regards.

Hi Hien,
Lots of detail in the great shot. Very nice.

Oh no! That is a baby Mockingbird! The State Bird of Texas! You also captured a lovely bokeh here! These birds will give the cats a fit, and even mailmen! We have had two nice days of sun! More babies will be born! Nice work Hien Vy!
