Taken close to Aira Force in Cumbria :-)
Oh my gosh he is adorable! Very different from our Robin Red Breast here in Canada - he looks positively rotund!
Awww, that's a cute robin.
Ah, you have made my day with this post. He is just precious. I love birds and robins are right up there on the top of my list.
I had to come back and visit him again today.
WOw. I had read that the new world robin was named for a completely different bird that it only superficially resembled, but I didn't know what it looked like. Yours is much cuter.
bird looking good but she is so sad.... hihihihiwalls
What a beautiful picture!
John oh my goodness did you have a 400+mm lens? this is an incredible close up of a bird. It's a wonderful shot!!Forgive me for being away so long. But, I am one of the blogs leaving EC if drastic changes aren't announced by midnight 27th.I don't care if people think I am a fanatic or a nut case. I do make a little profit on my blog and there is a number that scares me to death in the book of Revelations.I would literally drop over with a heart attack if I woke up one morning and found an add with that number on it running on my blog. This I cannot play around with. I may be a very liberal Christian but I don't play games of chance with my soul!!Now you are one of my all time favorites. I have been working my way through for a week now to grab all of my favorite blogs to add to a list to blog roll. You are definitely going to be on this list!! I love your work John!! You truly are very talented!!Happy weekend!!Jackie:-)
It looks like a "portrait" shot... were you so close? Or was it just "zoomed in" and at the same time you can out in "portrait"? Very interesting photo!
I like the differences between your robins and our American robins. Ours was named after yours. Ours is a much bigger bird, and the official state bird of Michigan, where I live.Thanks for helping me get started at CMF. I thanked you on my blog, but I didn't know if you saw it.
Webbielady: I was about 3m away with x4 optical zoom. I managed to get three shots before he flew off.Jackie: Thanks, although I'm not really talented. I take as many photos as possible then pick out the best one. I don't mind losing 15% ad-time, but I want to stop anything I object to ever showing on my blog. There's no way I'm going to pay $50 per blog per year :-(Ratty: thanks for joining CMF, it makes it much easier for me to advertise on The Everyday Adventurer :-)
What a lovely picture! Robins are my favourite bird, and I'm always thrilled to spot them in my garden.
