In the meantime, a sparrow

    Newer Older

    I had a terrific weekend for wildlife, including a hike to the end of Tomales Point in Point Reyes National Seashore (with what had to be more than 100 elk sighted along the way), as well as our annual trip to Ano Nuevo State Reserve to watch the elephant seals. As you can see here, this is neither an elk or a seal, but rather a sparrow image that was already prepared to be uploaded. I have way too many shots from this weekend, and haven't had the chance to plow through them yet. So for now, please enjoy this white crowned sparrow and check back over the next few days for some much larger wildlife.

      This is absolutely stunning, the deep green color of the trees enveloping this gorgeous sparrow. I can't wait to see your next posts!

      That is a regal looking sparrow and I love the texture of the tree needles.

      A charmer. Love the greens, beautiful foliage.
      Must feel good to have way too many shots to sort out. I'm not out there enough lately, so am a little frustrated. :-)

      I wish we had the same number of sparrow species in the UK. Super shot.
