Baby robin

Ever feel too big for the nest but not quite ready to fly? I found this guy perched in a bush in my front yard. He was quite accomodating to a series of closeup pictures, some with the lens not more than two inches away from his head. Waving a finger in front of his face caused him to open his mouth wide in anticipation of food. He eventually came to the realization that he was no longer invisible, then fluttered/hopped away.
