I was going through older photos I took last February and came across some White-crowned Sparrow images I had taken on Antelope Island State Park in the White Rock Bay area that I hadn’t edited or posted before. Among those files was this adult White-Crowned Sparrow perched on a bare branch of a greasewood that I liked because of the sparrow’s head turn, the light in its eye, the smooth, creamy background and how the sparrow was framed by the bare branches. I locked my focus on the sparrow and took a nice series of this adult in a burst…
And I ended up capturing an image of a juvenile White-crowned Sparrow photobombing the adult just a few frames later. I was so focused on the adult I didn’t even see the juvenile flying in. Normally I would have deleted this image but over the past couple of years I have begun to keep images of photobombs.

I keep them because they make me laugh.
Life is good.
