This is my friendly robin returning to the garden. To get the shot i first place mealworms live in the hand show the robin then using the nikon D5000 and 18-200 focus on my finger tips keeping the shutter half pressed and holding the camera in my right hand worms in the left raise both my arm and camera so i can just see the robin out in the back ground wait for him to fly in open the hand and try and take the picture as he takes the worm many hit and miss attemps before you get the shot no flash used as they dont like it try it it feeds them and its fun.

after another successful day playing with the robin and building some new nest boxes will post another shortly if you wish to give it a go here is the ingredients.
1 friendly/hungry robin
1 camera of choice with a short zoom
a few live mealworms
method
give the robin a mealworm or two to gain interest
place mealworms in your hand and show the robin
let the robin take some worms from your hand to get secure with you
repeat above untill the robin is confident
collect your camera
load your left hand with a few worms
focus your zoom on the tips of your fingers
raise your hand so you can see the out of focus robin in the background
(hold the camera in your right hand near the chin with your left arm outstreached) check focus on the finger tips(left hand) half hold the shutter release
open the hand to the robin
as he lands to take the worm
press the shutter repeat untill you get it right good luck its fun dont use flash they dont like it.
