Young Robin.

While I was in the garden yesterday doing a few tidy up jobs I noticed that a young Robin was hiding in the lilac bush so I nipped indoors for the camera but when I returned .........


.... it decided to come out of hiding and dropped onto the garden furniture to check me out. Typically this species is very inquisitive and it is not unusual for both adults and juvenilles to show a distinct lack of fear and approach very close to us humans.

 The 'head on' look.

 My movement is monitored very closely.

A very pleasant interlude between the garden chores and a delightful encounter with one of my favourite garden visitors.  FAB.

  10. One of my favorite "characters" in one of my favorite books, The Secret Garden, is the robin! I imagine his expressions were just like that.

  11. They are very cute, and you were lucky to get shots like that. I rarely do. My neighbor just rescued two baby robins. 'Tis that season.
