A Bold Young Blackbird

Blackbird (Turdus merula) – This beautiful young blackbird visited my pond this afternoon as I was watering the garden, and was so bold it stayed a while and allowed me to get quite close. Good job, too, because I only had my macro lens fitted. The last day of May and the last photos of May with a lovely bold young Blackbird to make you smile.

This Blackbird was singing so beautifully from my rooftop aerial this late afternoon when it decided to take off.
