I have a fascination with small, delicate creatures. Birds, reptiles, and cats particularly call to me. I find all of the above adorable, so I was very pleased when a small sparrow allowed me to lay down across from it, and inch closer and closer. I had to brace my camera on the ground and actually use my live view to take the shot, though. I couldn't fit my head close enough to see adequately through my viewfinder! I took many of this guy as he scavenged around for food, but this was my favorite.
