Robin Posing on Tree Branch

By sjcphotography
It was a special experience to photograph this Robin with no hide and in plain view at such a close range. On one occasion a Sparrowhawk flew in around two paces away from myself after my charismatic friend, but he escaped, I didn't see,,or hear him again that day!

There are bird droppings to the left on the branch. I decided not to edit them out. Would you have edited them out? Do you think the image is lessened with the droppings?

Lovely shot great viewed large, I think the bird droppings on the left and the downward facing branches just distract the shot slightly but still a great Robin image Grin

Thank you for your comment. I will try cloning and cropping to see if I can remove those issues. As I recall, I later trimmed the downward facing branches and took baby wipes with me to clean away any droppings, as I didn't notice them at the time! Blush

I've loved seeing these charismatic and feisty birds for as long as I can recall. Every garden should have at least one resident Robin.

Thank you for the vote, which has given me my second Readers' Choice Award Smile
