His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me

Hi Dick! You made a superb shot! What was he telling you? ;))

Blogtrotter is back to the «urban jungle», which Reykjavik is far from being... ;)). Enjoy and have a fabulous week!

what a big-looking bird - although I know how small they really are.

This is a real beauty. The bird is tack sharp with great catch light, and the blurred background suggests the slightly agitated state of the bird with its ruffled feathers. I have a real visceral reaction to the claws digging into the bit of wood. Well done!

Coincidentally, by the end of the week I expect to be posting a few bird shots on my own blog. One more abstract first, however.

Hey Dick the best picture of the sparrow I ever seen. Anna :)

GMG said...

Hi Dick! Came back to check this amazing shot...

Blogtrotter is now showing that Reykjavik is not entirely grey... ;)). Enjoy and have a fabulous weekend!
