Sparrow Flying Canon 7D 100mm 2.8

Oh it was such a nice surprise to get this straight out of the camera with just a little crop.... All settings on manual. Shooting into shadows with patchy sun and this little one hit the light at the right moment. I have started to use manual settings now when I shoot sparrows and forcing to 1600 - I am very handy with the delete setting on lightroom and my camera now. Sometimes it's hard to delete.

The implants seem to be settling - the wound and stiches are still tender so I am taking pain killers (mild ones) until it settles down. I am pretty bored because I am not allowed to do any sports as long as the stitches are in..... driving hubby a bit nutty with my constant moaning. So this was a treat to see this lovely little sparrow. I have been catching up with everyone today and now I am off to finish you off.
