“Courtship of Sparrows” (House Sparrows) Nikon D300, 600mm, F/5, 1/200s, -0.3EV, ISO 640, Silver Efex Pro Toning

With the arrival of warming temperatures and sunnier days, so begins the courtship of the birds…



  1. Adorable! The birdhouse looks like half of a heart.

    • Huh, I didn’t even notice that! The birdhouse is one I made from an old fireplace bellows. I’ve always loved it and this is the first that I see it being used! Thanks, Michaela! πŸ™‚

  2. This photo is so beautiful, Tracy!

    The soft tone, colors and light are amazing.

  3. This shot is like crazy good. It looks like a painting, for crying out loud! Really terrific catch, Tracy.

    • Aw, thanks Dave! This is what happens when you are patient and take about a gazillion shots over the course of an afternoon! The post processing was sort of a must as I needed to eliminate a yucky shed color…the vignette did the trick! πŸ™‚

  4. oooooohhhhhhh, simply lovely. I love birds and I love the soft colors and look you have here. One day I hope I’m as good.

    • Thank you, Jan! Practice makes perfect (and I must say, you do not do badly!) πŸ™‚

  5. You’re too kind! πŸ™‚

  6. It is nice to see the birds out again after such a cold winter.

    • Couldn’t agree more, Mike and they make the landscape oh, so cheery too!

  7. Wow…Nice!

  8. Beautiful composition of common birds.

    • I was just so damn excited that the birds FINALLY took up residence in this house! They are just too cute to watch, too. Can’t wait for the babies! Thank you, Lynn!
