A full frame capture of a Robin (Erithacus rubecula), taken in our garden last October against the background of reddening Acer foliage. The leaves are only just beginning to turn this year and I am hoping for new photos, but strangely there don't seem to be many birds around yet. Hope they turn up before windy weather strips the foliage off!

I was blown away by your response to my last image - thank you all so much and a special thank you to Pete for the HC and to Chris(ChristineD) for her User Award - really appreciated Smile
