Sparrow, bird on a bollard, Porto Mediceo, LivornoStill posting “canned” images of Livorno from Paris: the photo of this lonely bird was taken about a month ago at the Elba pier, inside the “Porto Mediceo”.

The bird is watching you like a lady! Funny.

No false moves! This little fellow is actively monitoring your every step.

This bird is watching you very carefully, probably wondering what you are doing! It's a great capture.

Sparrows are such dainty little things. I love the way the colors of its plumage are echoed in the colors of the rust and in the background. Nice shot.

In the words of Simon and Garfunkel: Who will love a little sparrow?

Have you been using the wingscapes too? :)

How wonderful of him to pose for you!

I sure hope you're not spending too much time in front of the computer on your vacation! ;)

Nicely done. It's hard to capture a bird's beaky expression but you've done it here.

And you needn't apologize for what you call "canned" images...they are worthy photographs and it matters not when or where you took them!

And have a good week!

This helps me overcome my mood :). Love everything in this photo. The rusty bollard, the bird and the water in the background.

I'm glad you took your pix with you and are taking the time to post. I love your blog. But, after saying that . . . don't miss out on your vacation! :)

the little guy is adorable. Glad you posted this. Nothing "canned" just very real.

Also, Elba is a nice name for a pier.
