Courtship feeding

By gill_f  
Robins (and many other birds) display this behaviour during their courtship, when the female bird is about to lay her eggs and immediately after laying them. It is strange to see an adult female acting like a chick, begging to be fed. In this picture the male robin has caught an insect to feed the female.
It is a shame that the light was so poor and the ISO had to be cranked up.

High ISO or not, it's still a superb image. Something I have never seen captured before.
