Found this image yesterday as I edited my summer images.  This was actually a test exposure from a video assignment back in July.  The client wanted song birds on wildflowers “like the photos on my website”.  Problem is, that is no easy task and can take a lot of time and luck.  Fortunately, I can usually count on this little meadow not too far from home and it came through on this day!

  1. Nice picture. How much do you have to pay that sparrow to sit on purple flowers? Does he sit on any other flowers other than iris and lupine?

    She does sit on lupine too! Works much cheaper then most super models – a few seeds and she is happy.

    A friend has jokingly accused me of carrying around a stuff bird that a then place on flowers. 🙂
