Adult White-crowned Sparrow and Rose hips – Nikon D500, f9, 1/1000, ISO 500, Nikkor 500mm VR with 1.4x TC, natural light
A few days ago I photographed this adult White-crowned Sparrow perched on a wild rose bush that is absolutely covered in red rose hips at Farmington Bay WMA. I wish I could have gotten more of the rose hips sharply in focus but I was trying to keep my shutter speed up in case the sparrow flew.
This particular section of the rose bush seems to be a favorite perch for the sparrows that visit it because I have images of quite a few of them perched in the same exact spot. The background is a bit messy but I like this image despite that.
Life is pretty scary right now on the political front for many of us but life is still good. I have to remember that.
