[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was shot at Wicken Fen Nature Reserve, I had been walking around the site all day and had had no luck. I then went on to the little cafe to have a bite to eat, this is when i found were all the birds had been. So there I was with my lemonade and bacon sandwich sitting at a picnic table snapping away at anything that moved. It was during this time that one brave little sparrow came to within about a meters distance and just sat and stared at me.

Hi Will
Welcome to TN. It is often the way that you get your shot when you least expect it. Well done on capturing this little fellow with good detail close up. Nice catchlight in the eye

Was he "posing" just for you???
