I bought a birdbath about a month ago expecting the birds to love it. Many times I would be sitting out in the garden reading and the birds would fly over to it, see me, then fly away. This time I was ready with the 180mm Macro! The robin landed on our old plow in the garden (the next picture) and watched me for some time. I knew she wanted to try out the birdbath but was afraid of me. Patience finally won out and she flew over to the birdbath and I was ready! First she took a bath and then had a couple of drinks. I have wanted this picture for so long, and now that I finally have it, I think it is one of my best shots to date! Patience does really pay off!
