Bombed Birdy


Mr. White-throated Sparrow was minding his business when he was photo bombed by a female cardinal. He didn't look any too happy about it, either.

I got a chuckle from the bombed photo. Perhaps he doesn't like the colours that the young lady is wearing.

Well the nerve of that cheeky cardinal! Mr. Sparrow does look a bit put out.
You did get a fantastic shot of him though before the bomb flew through!

I think he's saying "hey you just ruined my photo shoot"!

Gail Dixon said...

Haha, he looks extremely annoyed. It's so hard to get the white-throated sparrow to pose on a limb; the ones I see are always foraging on the ground. Beautiful shots.

Pamela Gordon said...

Well drat!!! Way to mess up a great head shot!!!

I was just outside and noticed quite a few birds flitting around...I thought about going in and getting my camera, but as I watched them, they never landed for more than a few seconds and I thought of you and how well you capture these little guys and gals!!! And of course...wondered how you ever can catch them standing still!!!
