Just found his feet. Equates to a child's first steps I suppose. Wonderful picture, clever - and patient - to capture it especially with such excellent eye focus.

Good morning to you all....thanks so much for all the lovely comments I have found here this morning,much appreciated.I have just arrived back from my morning walk with George and everywhere is looking gorgeous....made a mental note to get out with the macro lens,every step taken there is a picture,the meadow is full of new life.

My thoughts today are with my late Son Steven,it's his Birthday.

Have a great day everyone........catch up with you all soon.

I love robins whatever their stage but there's something rather special when they are balls of fluff and gummy looking. This is beautiful!
