A fine shot of Robin against the blue (how unusual) of the sky and perched on an interesting seed head: very well done, Sylvia.

The seed pod belongs to our New Zealand Flax or Phormium - a pointy, evergreen sword-leafed perennial that is employed as a focal point in a garden or as a plant specimen - it is several feet in diameter and more than seven feet tall. The seed pods do make super perches.

Great angle and pose. Delicate gradiated sky goes well and the perch is good too. TG

A cracking shot - good feather detail and eye and it shows up very well against the bg - like the perch too - a well deserved UA too
