Monday was a cool but brilliantly sunny day. Several times when I went out of the back door there was a House Sparrow perched on the end of the gutter just above my head. He was chirping away so busily he hardly took any notice as I help up the TZ7 to take a few shots. The camera must have been less than four feet away while he stood out beautifully against a clear blue sky. I took a lot of shots - you wouldn't believe how many times he turned his head away just as I pressed the shutter!
He even allowed me to take a piece of video. A bit wobbly as I was holding the camera above my head to get as close as he would allow.
