Slo-Mo Captures Birds Eating Out of the Palm of Photographer’s Hand | My Modern Met


Birds come to this photographer and eat straight out of her hand. She’s like a real-life Cinderella!

Wild birds don’t usually interact with people, and they often fly away if they hear even the slightest noise. However, Michigan-based photographer Jocelyn Anderson has a special knack for getting close to timid feathered friends. She’s known for her stunning photos of birds in their natural habitats.
