It always amazes me how many different moods our British Robin (Erithacus rubecula) can display. Sometimes cute, cuddly and innocent and at other times blatantly loud, aggressive and territorial! I think this one, taken in the garden the other day, is in the cute, cuddly and innocent category!

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterday's Autumn Great Tit - very much appreciated as always Smile

Certainly does not look aggressive or territorial at the moment, Sylvia: super shot, colours and detail immaculately captured and with a nice catch of light in it's eye.
Just add a sprig of Holly and that the Christmas cards sortedWink

Lovely capture Sylvia. As you say, so many variations to this little bird. He always appears with a different aspect each time.
