Snazzy design for a robin. Ours are without the smart white and black streamline pattern. You do not require tack sharp for everything. This is excellent art. TG

As you say, not so sharp but photography isn't just about getting technically perfect shots every time, it is about much more than that and this a remarkable record of the visit from this lovely bird.

Two excellent captures and so different from the ones in the UK Herman, if they have the same nature you can get them to eat from your hand.

He's a handsome fella and very well captured, had that been me, by the time I'd sorted everything the poor fell would have died of old age Grin.

He looks as though he was very comfortable in your lounge, did he stay for tea and biscuitsGrin

They look great on the patterns of the couch. It looks slimmer than the English and American robins, Herman.
18 Jun 2013 10:23AM
A very good shot of this bright little chap.
Whenever I walk around my garden and my resident robin is about it follows me ,hoping that I might start digging and turn up a tasty morsel.

Two nice images Herman, but you have got your ISO way too high, which is giving you too much noise, i never go above ISO 800.
Best regards, Alf.
