Not a robin but...........

By ARJones
.....still a bird!

Not uploaded for a while - too busy working! Something different again for me - quite pleased to almost freeze the wings on this one - apart from the wings these birds move real fast and erratically!

I know it's a humming bird but no more detail than that. My wife just commented that I could have got one that didn't have feathers sticking up on the back - I think she was joking?

Thanks for looking
