Many thanks for your great support of my last upload, with a special thank you to Sandy(Daisymaye) for the User Award - all very much appreciated and valued Smile

An absolutely brilliant image in my humble opinion...the robin in my garden is totally uncooperative

The wide aperture has separated the robin from the b/g nicely: fine capture, Sylvia, but, of course, all your images are of such a high standard, and such a pleasure to view.
