Watch the birdie!

Watch the birdie! Can you even see the birdie? This little sparrow, the symbol of Belgrade, is pretty hard to see, perched on this nearly leafless bush while soaking up some of the last rays of warmer sunshine for a while, I think.

Great shot! I love how the birdie is almost hidden. You capture it so well!

Ah, certainly! Your depth of field and fine capture made this much easier than finding Waldo - hah! I think that it is getting quite chilly across Europe now, right?

Bises,

Hello pretty birdie. Nicely captured...they are very flighty.
I like the brown tones of the photo with a bit of color from the flag.

A cute sparrow indeed! Is that your little house in the background, Bibi?

Hi!

Just a question: why the sparrow is the symbol of Beograd?

Bibi said...

Leif, I wish it were my home! It is part of the Kalemegdan fortress!

Dadu, the sparrow was chosen as the symbol of Belgrade because it is a small bird capable of soaring to great heights, and thus stands for the special Belgrade spirit.

Thank you!

(home in Kalemegdan: such a stony hype and many animals and tanks to keep the house safe^^)

Excellent juxtaposition with nice fall colors!

I am most suprised that the sparrow is the symbol of Belgrade

Jacob said...

The birdie is naturally camouflaged and it really works. It's a cutie, though. I love the shot and the muted autumnal colors!

Here's hoping for a mild winter.

Gaelyn said...

Sweet little thing. Hope it doesn't freeze to death. Do they stick around all year?

Bibi said...

Hi, Gaelyn! Yep, the little sparrows hang around all year.
