Great shot Julia. I think these cute little birds are often overlooked by photographers as they used to be so common at one time. Sadly they're not so common now, and it's nice to see a lovely picture like this.

I know, birds are never happy about their looks, always wishing they had something better, a bit nutty if you ask meGrin.

We fortunately have masses of these sparrows, quite a few get killed by Magpies, but they seem to survive quite well in numbers under the circumstances, a fine shot Julia, nice detail like your title lol. regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinTongue
