"Crabapple Thief"



I was shooting small birds eating rotten crabapples and this Grosbeak? stopped by and just took it! I love the cross-eyed look on his face.

I think the top one may be a Golden-crowned Sparrow, while the bottom one is definitely a Spotted Towhee.

Thanks for sharing these great shots. What I learn from you here is the rule of thirds in both shots and detail of the shots and composition you accomplish in the viewfinder.

Beautiful images. I prefer the second one as is much clear the bird.
