It’s not everyday that birds think that you’re not intimidating and act themselves directly in front of you.
But then, these two sparrows could be just desperate for a drink. One would take a sip while the other keeps watch, then they would swap. All the while, I was standing right in front of them, so close that I had to lean back just to grab this shot (that’s about a metre away)!
This was taken at Hibiya Park, Tokyo, right beside the Imperial Palace.
