Downy Fledgling

I'm relatively sure this little downy fledgling isn't the kind of photo that would even make the Editor's Pick, but it was so cute. I slipped outside to sit on my back steps for some photos. It saw me sitting on the steps and began hopping along the sidewalk until it got to my patio then continued coming towards me until it reached the steps then made its way up the steps to sit right next to me. I was fortunate to watch it grow to maturity and fly like an adult.
