Looking out the Kitchen window

Just got home from work, glanced outside the kitchen window which looks onto next doors small front garden and saw this. Ran for my camera and Bigma hoping it would carry on with it's meal and was lucky.

Grabbed a couple of shots through the window then thought I would try my luck by opening it .. at which the pesky bird flew off.

Not great quality ... bit annoyed really as I keep telling the wife to get out there and clean the windows.

A nice capture of a fantastic creature.. I love birds but birds of prey scare me a little as I know given 1/2 the chance they would eat my little grey

Good captures, in spite of the window. The second one has much more contrast, have they been processed differently?

What a great thing to see out of the kitchen window! Beautiful creature. I normally just see next door's cat out of mine! Agree with Aliengrove that the second one has more 'pop' - assume this is down to PP?

Second one has more aggressive PP work .. couldn't decide if it was a bit too much.

It's all well and good taking all these wonderful images and making everyone green with envy. but the poor sparrow has rights too.

On the PP, according to my bird book, the first one would make it a juvenile, the second an adult.
