21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Rose breasted sparrows soft low light in my back yard.

These little fellows have come for some food. It is late fall and a light snow had melted on the branches of the tree creating droplets on the branches. There was slight thinning of the overcast sky that brightened as I was shooting these birds. This was one of dozens of shots taken and the one that caught the social aspect of these birds, the light, the background down into the valley and the droplets. The diffuse light was perfect.
