Macro photography of a sparrow chick

On Saturday, I had a rare opportunity of having a photo shoot with a sparrow chick at a swimming pool. It was surprisingly docile, not even moving when the camera lens was 1 cm from its face (sufficiently close to resolve the individual fibres in the fine wing feathers).

Click on the large images to see the details.
