CommentLate afternoon wintry sun meant a soft light bathed this sparrow's plumage. His head turn towards me meant a glint in his eye was captured as well as part of his throat.
A dark bush in the distance did not detract, something I try increasingly to consider when taking photographs these days.
For all these reasons and especially for the clarity of this closeup, I chose to submit this image.
