This little Robin (Erithacus rubecula) was having quite a job staying upright in the strong winds yesterday! Taken in the garden against a background of the newly emerged foliage of a red acer shrub.
Many thanks for your overwhelming support of yesterdays upload, with a special thank you to Polli(Pollisher) and Lillian (Lillian) for their User Awards - delighted to receive them and highly valued
Lol Love it Sylvia, superbly timed
Love his/her frilly skirt great shot Sylvia
Love this, the wind has made it so different.
Beautiful shot and background
Oh wow, what a superb capture.....so cute with the ruffled feathers
PS Thanks for the PM
Wind ruffled yet composed enough to allow you an excellent shot, Sylvia.
Lol.. .. Wonderful!
Wonderful image Sylvia, superb detail and the blowing feathers add that little extra touch of magic
Poor thing is a bit wind swept, the composition and clarity is superb against a lovely background. - gary
Most birds like their feathers smoothed and flattened Sylvia but this litle fella seems to be thoroughly enjoying a blast of cool breeze. Delightful shot.
Super image,well done.
Well captured. Lovely exposure.
(Called Marilyn, I presume.)
A delightful image of this lovely little robin braving the elements, I think she's attempting to recreate that famous Marilyn Monroe photograph for you! I knew this was yours straightaway, it was the red acer as a background that gave it away!
Washed it's hair and can't do a thing with it Lovely shot Sylvia.
Cracking shot !!!

Funnily enough Malcolm I was toying with the idea of calling this image "Lady in Red" but wasn't sure whether this little robin was a boy or a girl
Absolutely delightful with a background to die for.
Well timed and beautifully captured Sylvia
A really wonderful photograph Sylvia, the background, perch and pose and timing are spot on
Love it. She's got a little skirt on and it's blowing in the breeze. And she looks so prim and proper! Beautiful shot.......Sandy
A robin in a raa raa skirt! Not something you see every day and stands out from the thumbnails as such. Has your usual excellent sharpness and shallow DoF to boot.
Windswept and interesting. A terrific image.
