We had a little bit of snow the last few days. While I was out around sunset, I caught a glimpse of this little fellow.
At first, I thought it might be a song sparrow. But after further attention I realized it was a White Throated Sparrow. The give away for me was in the clear white breast and if you look really closely, you will see a hint of yellow over its beak.
I love to try and capture gesture in my wildlife subjects. It makes them seem so much more “human”. I love the way the head is cocked on this subject. I make a game of trying to capture gesture in wildlife. I think it keeps you sharp as a photographer. Too many times I see people standing around while all sorts of wonderful things are happening around them. Maybe they should stop and look!
