I was sitting alone in my yard a couple of mornings ago enjoyng the fresh air and my little friend came to visit me. Lucky me, I had my D90 with the telephoto around my neck. He let me take several photos of him and his buddies showed up, too. Anyway, he landed on my weeping birch with my solar lights in them. :D

I agree - outstanding capture, Laura. I have a small suggestion: crop a little off the top and left, to move him to the upper left. That will allow the inherent charm to come through even more. Lovely portrait of a cute Chipping Sparrow. I feel like I made a friend here :) #11808967

Gosh, thanks Jim. I'll do just that and enter it again with it's new look!! I appreciate the feedback. I think I am at my photo limit now so I'll see what I can take down to make room for the new! #11808973
