My Umbrella

I believe it’s a baby Lincoln Sparrow (since there were adult Lincoln Sparrows in the area). It looks like it has a personal umbrella :wink:

Gary, a neat look at this little guy with his fresh start in life. From the appearance of some of the feathers he is a recent entry into the world. The juxtaposition of the umbrella or canopy to the sparrow makes an interesting addition to the scene also…:sunglasses:

Gary, the mix of bird and blooms makes for a big grin. It’s a delightful take on new life.

A very nice composition, Gary. The small bird and large plant make a fun juxtaposition. The tip of the fireweed seems to add just the right splash of color. You’re not this far along with spring this year are you?

A nice image with a little story attached, Gary ! You’ve caught the fledgling sparrow with its slightly unkempt feathers beautifully.
