I needed a macro lens!

I was hiding under a shelter from the drizzle while trying to photograph a Magpie. My bag was on a bench next to me when suddenly I realized a sticky beak was around :D LOL, it was too close for my telephoto lens to get a good focus. And I didn't have time to step back.

  1. What a great moment! I'm surprised at how trusting these birds are of us humans.
    He really must have thought you had something in there for him.
    Not a bad effort with the telephoto lens!

  2. :D It only lasted a couple of seconds, but the curiosity was obviously bigger than the other instincts. I had to sharpen this image in PS a bit to make it look crisper.

  3. G'day Nickolay,
    Great catch and I loved the label NOSY Miner - perfect.
