Subject: [Leica] IMG: White-crowned Sparrow

The White-crowned Sparrow is a winter visitor from Alaska's boreal forests 
and is common in brushy habitats in California's central valley.  I've lured 
this juvenile sparrow within range of the 280 APO by constructing a 
water-themed outdoor bird photography studio which I call Birdbath 2.0 
(Birdbath 1.x was not photogenic).

technical stuff: Sony a7II, 280mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R, tripod, blind, camp chair

As usual, all comments are welcome.
