House Sparrow (Passer domesticus)

I like the open beak, the wintry feel of the background hues and the clarity of the composition.

Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM lens, 1/1,000th sec, f/14, 400mm at ISO 500


  1. Just about perfect Tim. It's nice to be able to get enough light for a fast shutter speed, as well close the aperture a bit.

  2. Isn't that a lovely shot? I like the splay of the legs and the depth of the feathers.
