Got a surprise visit yesterday from this little fella. I have been battling to get a photo of one for ages and yesterday my son called me to come to the lounge quickly and bring my camera. Hand held grab shot and not very sharp but you can get an idea what our Robins look like here Smile
Thanx so much to all who voted on my poinsettia shot yesterday. A special thanx to Zoe [ Mototaur] for the stunning artistic mod on it Smile
The berg wind is blowing hard here - warm and not nice, usually heralding an approaching cold front !Sad

Snazzy design for a robin. Ours are without the smart white and black streamline pattern. You do not require tack sharp for everything. This is excellent art. TG

As you say, not so sharp but photography isn't just about getting technically perfect shots every time, it is about much more than that and this a remarkable record of the visit from this lovely bird.
