A full frame, uncropped and composed in-camera capture of my feisty Robin (Erithacus rubecula) who is now in full control of his area again! He chose to perch on the stalk of a pampas grass head I had pushed into the branches of a conifer shrub. Was hoping birds would land on the feathery seed head, but it proved too unstable for them.

Many thanks for your generous support of yesterdays upload. Always very much appreciated Smile

He has taken advantage of the perch you provided and the curled 'bitty' has afforded a nice frame foe him to pose in.
