Beauty from the Commonplace: 27 Cool Photographs of Sparrows

“Quit trying to find beautiful objects to photograph. Find the ordinary objects so you can transform it by photographing it.” – Morley Baer

Sparrows may not be the most exotic species to photograph, but in the spirit of Morley Baer, these photographers show that it's not all about the subject. With a little skill a good photographer can get a great shot as these photographs of the humble sparrow clearly demonstrate.

I nice little set of images. I had forgotten about this one I took three years ago in Switzerland. The birds would come and drink from the fountain in the middle of the town! Is it a sparrow?!

Who ever said Sparrows were an uninteresting bird to photograph, have never really looked. Great set of photo’s.

I love sparrows! We are lucky here in Niagara to have numerous different species. Here’s a swamp sparrow:

and this one is an American Tree sparrow.
