Default Savanna Sparrow

I like this shot except for the out-of focus branch across the tail. I did a version with the branch cloned out but didn't like it so decided to stay with reality.

Nothing wrong with the reality shot Dan. I have yet to see one of these little guys.

Try a bit of s/h on this photo or better yet for next time remember to bring a flash . THat would open up the dark bird a lot and make it real nice. Its too dark the way you have it now.

Thanks for your thoughts but I disagree with your comments. This is a picture of a small bird in a bush on a cloudy day. It's what I saw. It was shot in RAW so lots more things could be changed but I preferred it the way I posted it. I guess it comes down to being a matter of taste.

It is hard to be reality, Nice picture Dan.

It reminds me of the women that put plastic logs in her fireplace because they looked more real.
