This is a Robin which my grandfather has tamed and was followed into the house for another tasty mealworm. Today an old friend of the family came to my granfathers house with a small newly hatched chick which had fallen from a nest. It was put in the bird box where this little fella is feeding his mate and chicks so fingers crossed he will take to the new bird and not kick it out or leave it to starve. This little bird is atleast three years old, he is surviving so well as he has a healthy diet and also never goes hungry. This was less of photography and more of a snapshot but i think the composition is good as you can see that the bird is either looking at me or the person feeding him. He is now used to me and often flies at my face when he wants food,, those pesky birds!!!

A beautiful shot! It is such a privilege when wildlife chooses to share their lives with you. 'My' Robins only seem to love me in the winter (I had one perch on my hand for a fraction of a second), I don't see much of them now!

A delightful image, as the old saying goes "A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush"

Had a BBQ today and my little cousin and i had alot of fun with the robin because i put mealworms on my cousins back and the robin stayed there for a good 30 seconds or so, compared to the 10 seconds he stays in our hands.
