The Extra Mile

How do you find out you have a couple of lost sparrow fledglings living in your eaves? Well, you notice the daddy sparrow climbing the walls.

Literally.

Notice the two little beaks and heads in the gap between the soffit and the wall. Somehow, they figured out how dad could pass food up to them, and that's what he's been doing for the last few days.

Tech stuff: technically, this is pretty ropey - getting to the edge of what the camera can do, plus shooting into shadows towards the sun. But there's a story here...

Thanks for stopping to take a look.

Now that´s a difficult situation to shoot! Didn´t want to be in your boots there ;D But you still can see the birdies! Oh, btw germany won the Grand Prix - where were the brits? =P
