An English gardener became best friends with a European robin that comes flying whenever he hears the sound of the van turning up the driveway.

A couple years ago Tony Putman named the bird ‘Bob’, and began taking pictures of him in a garden where he worked twice a week.

Thanks to Bob, the landscaper has turned into an aspiring wildlife photographer, taking pictures of the friendly robin and the honeybees that collect nectar from the flowers.

Bob regularly collects meals directly from Tony’s hand every time he visits the garden. ”Bob is a bold, confident little robin,” said the 38-year-old who lives in Crowborough, East Sussex, UK. “I’m basically a walking bird feeder and he knows it… although, I can also call him.”
