Birds are making a strong comeback at the readers’ wildlife photo desk. A reader from Devon sent me this close-up photo of a European robin (Erithacus rubecula) with some info:
There were comments earlier today about the apparent tameness of the European Robin. As can be seen this one got so close you can see my friend’s house reflected in its eye!
I took the photo about a year ago (Dec 12) in a friend’s garden. The bird was within 6 feet but I did use a telephoto lens.The house reflected in the eye is actually the same one featured here (and diligent readers will remember that cool post).
Don’t you just want to kiss that little beak?
