Went out today and spotted what i think to be a female house sparrow?? chomping on a dragon fly or similar species, if im wrong on the birds species im sure somebody will correct me.
I was a bit annoyed i could not get a completley clear shot, only managed to get2 shots off before it scarpered but the main bits are there,i deicided to upload this anyway as i was pleased to get the bird in focus with all the branches in the way. any comments are welcome and thanks for looking

No objections from me, this is a shot of a bird in its natural surrounding, what could be more perfect than that! Wink Well done, good detail, you caught him with his meal, text book perfect! I am not sure this is a house sparrow, the white in the forehead and on the feathers seem to indicate something else, but I am not up to snuff on birds in your area, sorry! Spot on! Click!!!
