Take Off

Its not often I upload more than one image a day as it can clog your streams but I wanted to put this up, simply because I think its the luckiest shot I have ever taken. Myself and my wife were in Grassmere in the Lake District so I could shoot some landscapes. I had just finished a few and decided to change lenses for the walk down to shoot some of the wild flowers in the meadows we had passed on the way up. 

Along a path a lot of birds were landing on posts as we walked along, the robins in the Lakes for some reason seem to be very brave and this little chap sat and watched us as we approached, I took his image just as he decided to take off. I'm no wildlife photographer but spending time in Chester Zoo has taught me a lot about trying to get images such as this but you can never beat a good dose of luck too :)
