Description:

I went to go outside, and this young blackbird was parked on the back of one of my garden benches. I sneaked back in for the camera, and sneaked back out again: but I needn't have bothered, because he (or she) ignored me.
The third picture is for amusement value only - if you look carefully, you can see my house reflected in his eye...
