A Bird in the Hand...

By Ukulele_Lady
This Robin is a regular visitor to my parents' garden where he readily comes to the hand to feast on mealworms.

This is the first time I've been around at treat time so I was pleased he had no fear of me and my camera. He must really love those mealworms.

Apologies for the busy background - it's the beech tree he hops out from but maybe another time I will coax him to come a little further and get a more attractive backdrop.

Thanks for looking,
