Listening

By ldavis66  
This is a photo I took when I went out into the snow in my garden this morning and spied this little birdie hiding. I wanted the robin to be the main focus so I focused just on it and let the background stay slightly out of focus. I managed to get quite close so I didn't have to zoom very much. I like the way he looks like he's listening!
