Took these images yesterday. Brought a Scripture to mind: Mat 10:29 & 31- Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? and not one of them shall fall on the ground without your Father's consent. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
V2 Mrs Sparrow takes the place of focus
Thank you all so very much for your votes and comments on the Gooseberry photo. They are a golden yellow when ripe, somewhat tarty taste.
Have a wonderful Friday Smile

Great photos, Herman. I have no idea about scriptural quotes. I like V2, the way the two birds are relating.

Both are excellent pictures, but V2 has more symmetry and Mr. Sparrow's white mask prevents him from fading in the background.
