Bird Lady

This woman was feeding the birds outside of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. We thought this was a little unusual because it's rare that sparrows will feed like this - one usually sees pigeons eating from people's hands.

 

I kept trying to move in closer, to get better shots. Then, just when I was ready to take some close up macros from only about 2 feet, it started to pour and we all had to take cover. This turned out to be about the best I got.
