We were hanging around in the outside dining area at the Lodge, when this sparrow was spotted at the base of some nearby bushes.  I ran to my camera and quickly got a few shots of yet another new species for me from this trip.  As with other flash-shots, I had to use Photoshop to deal with the undesirable light reflex in the eye.
