Closer

Lately, while I’m pottering about in the garden, I’m amazed just how close the birds will get to me…so  after a while I decided to swap the secateurs for a camera and sit and wait…

Initially this female blackbird was quite shy and remained in close vicinity to the privet hedge making clucking noises….after a while she regained her somewhat bossy countenance and decided to show me that it was her food…a regular display that she usually performs for the other blackbirds, she spends a lot of her time chasing them round the garden just because they want to eat too…

In the first shot she was charging straight at me so fast I could barely fit her in the frame…. o.O

    • Thanks Shakti! 🙂 Maybe too well fed (if that’s possible)…though she is puffing herself up a bit to increase her size…. 😉
