Robin in the rain

By HarveySquires  
Evening everyone hope you all had an eventful day todays upload is a shot i caught on sunday when it was quite literally chucking it down with rain all day so i though i wont let the rain spoil my weekend so i set up my hide with my camera inside and sat in it for a few hours and got bored so i went inside to warm up and left my camera on remote and this surprisingly dry robin landed on my perch (its is my regular visitor to my feeding station)so i got a few shots but then it came back when i was in the hide and got more like this one Grin if you look closely you can see tiny water droplets on the robins feathers Grin

This was taken with my 550D not the 5D Tongue

(also looking at it now it could be a tad brighter :S)
