A Helpful Sparrow

Sparrow, port of Livorno
Quickly hopping sparrows aren't easy to catch in reasonable poses, but this one was very accommodating.

I was able to get a portrait of him against a rock and another facing the water of the harbor.

He stands out quite nicely.

Beautiful portraits. You're right, they're usually hopping all over the place. Maybe this one sensed your friendly nature and thus posed for you?

A handsome fellow.

So nice of him to pose.

What a sweetheart (the sparrow).

He seems to appreciate your noticing him. Probably the first time anyone cared enough to take his picture.
