Good morning folks,
A shot of one of the Robins that visit me at the hide today.
I have two pairs that at the moment tolerate one another most of the time.
Was intending to be out first thing but the light is very poor with light snow falling
as I write this. I'll probably pop up the woods later to check up on things.
Many thanks for the C &C's on my LTT's yesterday, & a special thank you to
Sylvia (Teocali) for the tip.
Colin

This is definitely the best of the current series ColinSmile

Robin, perch and background are spot on
Excellent catch-light in the eye too
I would have swapped your conditions, for the harsh light and shadows that scuppered my chances this morningSad

Superbly detailed and posing to perfection for you, Colin. Lovely natural plumage colouring and very fine eye Wink love the textures of that perch and the way the sunlight plays on the moss. I agree with others that this is your best so far.
