Super singing pose and composition, Karl. Love the natural perch — it’s refreshing. A beauty.

Karl I think your comp is spot on and reflective of the clutter and beauty of these birds and their habitat. The vegetation at first glance may seem like clutter to some but it is artfully framed as the sparrows habitat. This IMO beats hands down a bird on a stick with a poster like background image any day.

I love everything about this shot, framing, pine needles and the BG. Super sharp.

So wonderfully typical- they seem to sing all day! Love the setting and the turned head.

Karl, This is exceptional. Everything in focus that should be in focus with great detail.

This is a fantastic shot Karl, so real I keep expecting this little sparrow to hop right out of the frame! Beautifully done!
