It's a problem, when you're sitting in the garden with the long lens and the subject comes too close... ignoring the human presence in favour of the newly revealed goodies in the freshly cut grass...

I find that lens very difficult to work with - usually for bird images!!

At least he's stopped. I tried to photograph a stray cat once and it came to me for some fuss. Bah.

You snagged a good close-up of this hungry bird though, Mike.
