Here's a shot of a Dunnock that loves the seeds that I scatter on my patio.
I sat there with my camera on a tripod for about 2 hours in the freezing cold before finally he appeared and hopped down, completely oblivious to me, and started picking at the seeds. I'm gonna need a set of extension tubes soon, this fellow comes so close that my lens can't focus on him! Smile

Thanks for looking!
