English Robin. 'This was the tamest bird I have ever seen. It was bitterly cold and I'm sure he/she was hungry but it was on my shoulder, on my head, in my camera bag. No need for a telephoto lens here, this was taken with my macro lens. It stayed with me for about 20 minutes and I ended up going back to the car to get my sandwiches and feeding him out of my hand. He made my day." photo & text by G. Killon on flickr
