I was trying to photograph this song sparrow singing his little heart out. But just as I snapped the shot, he took off.
Photo Friday: Wildlife
Maybe it was a lucky accident. This seems better that a static shot would have been. Very nice.

I agree, lucky you, that he took off when you clicked. Beautiful wingspread, a shot that is hard to achieve. A nice glimpse of the sparrow's gray primary feathers too. Like the texture and earth tones.

@jane | wildgulch.com: True - there's no way I'd manage a shot like this intentionally. :^)
A splendid shot Kathe. Most of the shots like this are accidental. To plan for it and time it is virtually impossible. Excellent capture. Thank you for sharing

@Roman: Romantic? I'm not sure why either. The colors, maybe?
