100 ...The male House Sparrow.

By Malc_V
Happy Sparrow.

Looked at my stats and was so amazed to find that i was one image away from the big one, Well i spent ages in my new centrally heated hide ( see previous image ) waiting and hoping for something to happen but my only visitors were Sparrows.
Having transfered the days shots to my PC i narrowed them down to two images that i liked, i called Diem for her opinion and she liked this one as he looked happier than the chap in the other image, i will probably follow up with that one.

So this is my 100th image on EPZ, thankyou everyone for all your support and i hope you like this picture.

Many thanks.
