Not The Intended Subject, Oh well ;-)

By SocksAndStuff
Here's a chubby little Sparrow looking pretty relaxed. I was actually trying to get Swallows flying over the canal, yes they are back and I'm so happy to see them again, but my panning is a little rusty and the shots I got aren't up to scratch. The Version is a poor attempt at a perched Swallow - I only got a quick shot off and wasn't prepared for the excitement of seeing it. Had a great time trying in the sunshine though, and a lovely walk. Hope you're all getting to see a little sun, it really felt like summer today while I was gardening.

Love the cheeky chubby sparrow Helen, he posed nicely for you.

A fine sparrow portrait. Looks like a tree swallow. A little larger and it could also be a purple martin. Very tough to get images. They can remain flying for hours on end. Very fast too. TG

Well done on both, Helen.
Great shot of the house sparrow and the swallow is how we generally see them!
