I love magpies. Usually they don't let me take their picture. They wait around until I get my camera ready then they take off. I'm sure they do it on purpose. Though, I did have one sit and pose for me. I took several pictures of him.
It was my lucky day been chasin' them since I moved here, this one just happen to be hanging around a tree by the pond I always go to take photos I think it had an injured wing but when I finaly slowly manage to creep close enough it took off!
