Twa Buddies.

By Tooma
Two wee cuddly Sparrows sharing a perch at the top of a tree in the garden. Shot recently during a brighter couple of hours; good to have some stronger light and get the shutter speed up for some sharper images.

These two may be siblings as there are a dozen or so Sparrows which are always about somewhere near-bye, and I like to think they are best buds too.
I spotted, and got an almost good shot, of a Dunnock a few weeks ago.

Not so long ago I thought a Dunnock was another name for a type of Sparrow, but I have since learned they are quite separate, have different markings, and very different social behaviour. I have not spotted another one since. Still trying to get some good shots of the lovely Grey Wagtail as well, which is still dropping in only occasionally - but at least I'm still seeing him about. Smile

Reminds me of “A Wee **** Sparrah” by Duncan MacRae.
If you watch this, you may need a Scottish Translator!!!

Every time I look at a shot of a Sparra, that mad poem comes to mind Ian. Yes, I did watch - just to remind myself how things turned out for that wee Sparra. Smile

It was actually cloudless too, Jenn; just to rub it in, lol. I added the clouds. Smile
