It was a slightly rainy day. I was once again sitting in my camouflage tent and was only about 2 meters away from our bird feeding place. At this time of day, almost exclusively house sparrows were frolicking at the feeder. The female jumped once on the edge, so I could capture it in full size. You should view this image in large — on a tablet or laptop/desktop monitor. Even a few raindrops stand out on the plumage.
With the male it was different. He was still eating a sunflower seed and you can even see his tongue in his open beak! Again, please open the picture also on a large monitor!
