“麻雀飛行前之形 Sparrow Pre-Flight Forms” / 自然 Nature / SML.20130502.7D.40881

A sparrow grabs onto a metal stick readying self for flight.

 

I am mostly attracted to how the angle of its tail and body echo with the rope and metal structure it is standing on. The metal structure is used as man made bones for a young tree at the promenade (I am not exactly sure what they are called, but I am certain that the biologists from my extensive social media network would know better).

 

Every time I post photographs of birds, I am surprised by how loved they are by humans, so I will try to post more of these in the future, now that I realize that the 100-400 makes for an excellent macro lens.
