  1. Joe, hope you dont mind me asking, but you seem to lack a bit of focal length in some of your shots. Is this intentional, or a limitation of your gear? Posted 6 years ago
    1. A little bit of both, but mostly a gear limitation. In this case, if I could've gotten closer, I still would've taken this shot, but also taken a closer one of the same bird.

      This is the longest focal length lens I've got (and what I use for 95% of my wildlife photos):

      1. Thanks for explaining. In some situations you just cant have enough range. I find my 400mm still lacking in that regard. Posted 6 years ago

The Song Sparrow is a medium-sized American sparrow. Among the native sparrows in North America, it is easily one of the most abundant, variable and adaptable species.
