These next photos are of one of the many sparrows that visit my yard and bird feeder. The difference today is that I pushed the limits on the zoom control of my digital point and shoot. I had the zoom indicator into the red zone and took this photo through the same front screen door.
Another group of three sparrows from the same distance and pushing the zoom limits on the camera. The original first.
It's interesting that even though the background is a city street, it looks almost like water in these edited photos.
