15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Chaffinch closeup

Close up of a chaffinch that approached me during a lunch stop while travelling through Northern Wales. The few birds in the area seemed to be well habituated to people, coming close and watching us hoping for scraps. This individual was less than a foot away from me, it was so close that I had to lean backwards to get the focal point right for the shot.
