I was out at Blacksmiths Beach earlier this week trying to capture a sunrise. It was not one of those perfect sunrise days. There were large banks of cloud on the horizon with clear skies above. As a result the light was flat and dull. After giving the sky all the time I could, I decided it was time to pack up my tripod and take a walk along the beach to see if I could find anything interesting to photograph.
As I was packing up I felt a presence close behind me. I turned and looked and saw a baby magpie standing not two feet away looking up at me, watching. The magpie seemed to be totally unafraid of me.
I picked up my camera and took a few photos.
