Sierra has taken an interest in nature photography. I probably had a hand in that. After our snowstorm last week she took some photos of the birds under the feeder. Here are some of my favorites.
I cropped the picture below to get a close up of the white-throated sparrow's profile and was amazed to discover the sparkle of the snow. It gives an interesting and almost unreal backdrop to the bird.
I did not crop the pictures of the mourning dove and the sparrow below. I don't know if she intended it, or simply has her brother's eye for composition. Or maybe I'm just a doting mom. But I do love her photos. All photos were taken from our window seat and I am surprised at their clarity in spite of the smudgy window. (I should really clean that.)
