Garden Robins

By FeatherFriend
Hi everyone, just 4 shots of a trial using mealworms to see how well I could do with getting some Robins into the garden (still grounded at the moment) I just need to get the perches in the right position now Wink All taken at different times of the day as and when time would allow, hope some of you may like like them.
Many thanks for the votes and comments on my last upload and a special thank you to (Ray Seagrove), Dean (QuestforQuality) and Brian Curtis who so kindly gave their user awards, thanks guys, so much appreciated,
Regards,
Geoff.

PS: I should have mentioned that although the light looks ok here, the shutter speed varied from 120/160 sec so I am aware there is slight movement on V2 and V3.

Four beautiful shots Geoff. We have a Robin's nest in the garage with 5 eggs in it, and hoped to see the parents coming back and forth over the next few days, but the blooming local cats have scared them off
Sad - but life I'm afraid

On looking very closely on a different monitor Geoff it could be just out from dof and although the feather detailing shows as we discussed privately the eye will show misty.

I bet you are training him to sing scales--and the rewards are the meal worms! V4 is way beyond outstand, the rest are outstanding and more!
