Head of a Cape robin

By fotobee  
Tulbagh South Africa

This is a portrait of a Cape robin, taken at the maximum magnification of 2000 mm (eq of full frame size) to give a blurred background to the shot. The bird was at about +- 10 m away from me, and was quite unafraid, as these robins tend to be, allowing me to take at least four shots before flying away.

Thank you all, for looking at my sextant, and many thanks for the comments ! I am already trying Thundafund (Crowd funding) (Cats_123) I hold out little hope for this, as it will be essentialy illegal, as the only thing that I will comply with are the riding lights, which are paraffin. I will set sail from the Berg River mouth, and sail straight Southwards until I am clear of the 12 mile limit, and then turn left to Australia. As there will be no electricity onboard, I will have to be silent until I reach Aussie. I will also have no Legal papers, and will have to phone my sons to come and bail me out of the Aussie chooky. This is because everybody says I am mad, and cannot do it. My reasoning with the Thundafund crowd is that this is possible for a stroke victim to do, and should open the doors for many other stroke sufferers !

Have a good day !
Best regards
Martin
