Normally I wouldn’t take or present an image where the subject is as small in the frame as this juvenile White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys) is but I couldn’t resist because I like this image a lot.
I like seeing the sun-bleached “bones” of last years Phragmites along with the tassels of those from this season plus the dried tan color from the playa and some green growth from recent rains in the background. I enjoy the pastel bands of colors, the graphical lines of the old Phragmites stalks and even though the juvenile White-crowned is very small in the frame it still draws my attention.
A small bird in a large world.
