Every once in a while one needs to change perspective. I've been concentrating on raptors all fall. Today, one of my favorite raptor hunting grounds was a total bust. So, I wound up waiting by the bank of a stream for nearly an hour until the local songbird population decided to ignore me. I was rewarded with this shot of a Song Sparrow.

This is a beautiful picture. Very well composed. We are spoiled and often we need an exotic bird or animal to really look, but sometimes a sparrow deserves our attention. Well done!
