Hi airdaleman, I love the robin shot [I presume it is a robin] - To add another [and more shots], if you are uploading from your computer, add a reply and attach the shot to the reply [you also have to add at least a number or some comment for it to accept it as a reply]

Thanks JakeTPegg. Sure is a Robin, and thanks for the info on posting more than one image.

Great pic! That sure doesn't look like the robins we have around here!

Hi airedaleman,

If that's your first shot with a 350D it's a very good one! (or did you mean something else!) I think it's a robin, yes.

It's very clear and nice depth of field (DOF). It might have looked better if it was standing on a green patch of grass or something (I think the brown ground doesn't do the brown /red bird's colours justice) but often we can't control such variables can we?! Still you did well to catch this.

Enjoy the light!

Paul

The robins in the UK are the real ones. When English settlers came to N. America, they saw birds that reminded them of English robins. So we call them robins. But they aren't really.

Great Shot , sure is nice to see a true Robin from over home.

The smaller bird with it vibrant colour wins hands down over the large north american version.

Cheers Geoff
