:-D I looked out the window this morning and saw this Robin. What to do? How do I get out there without spooking him? Heart was thumping so hard. Somehow I got out there and here it is. All of them were taken with the Rebel, 135-400, and flash. As always, comments welcome.

Houston, nice job. I picked up a robin here over the weekend. Wasn't quite as easy to get as yours. You did a much better job. LOL

Spring must be just around the corner.

Thanks Golfer. I was really excited when I saw it. It was the first one I've seen this year and the first one I've ever got ashot at.

Good job! What has really suprised me, is that there are still some hanging
around in my neck of the woods. Of course, none of them were close enough
for a photo, so no one up here really believes me.

Nice job!. You must be in a warmer place than I, -25:shock: here today.

Don't expect to see any robins for a quite a few months here.

The 135-400 is a Sigma? Looks to be quite sharp.

Congrats on seeing and photographing a robin, Houston. This species is only a fading memory up here in the cold. It's tough getting anything to look interesting from a bird's eye view on a busy background like grass but you have done a reasonably decent job here.

Ichuckled atyour description of how you reacted. Been theremyself from time to time.:-)

Hay Normcar is your avatar shrinking in the cold? Looks to be only a couple of pixels.
