The snow makes a great background for it. Makes the red crown really pop. Love all the texture and detail you got in the snow.

Very nice snowy scene-lovely setting for the sparrow. I like the sparkles in the snow. And the puffed up little bird. :)

Great details and winter light, the blade of grass adds to it.

This is a beauty, Karl! The colours and detail on this lovely little sparrow look amazing against the snow covered ground, and the detail, light and shadows in the snow just make the image even better!
