Great, James! I especially love the second photo. It really DOES look like that sparrow is posing for the camera, and it definitely looks like it was looking at you as much as you were looking at it. When I see photos like this, I sometimes wonder what's going on behind those eyes. I sometimes think the little songbirds have some sort of magical lives only they know about.

A word is worth 1/1000th of a picture... Maybe that's why I use so many words!

I have to agree about what's going on in there. I think that's why I find birds so fascinating.
