No. 1 is my fav.

Such bokeh in birdie shots is very rare. Normally they are distracting branches. Job well done. Next time can you tell the robin to turn around. Kind of nitpicking



Daniel
He turned around in No. 2...Right into a shadow!

Nice Robin pictures Dawg. Up here in northern Minnesota we have a few that decide to overwinter instead of going south. Every year during the winter bird count in the Duluth area a dozen or so are counted and they seem to do okay even though we get cold temps. on occasion down beteen 20 and30 below F. They feed on Mountain Ash berries etc. A little story on Robins---during the summer I feep a feeder with grape jelly in it for Oriles, Catbirds etc. About four summers agothere was a Robin that would come to that feeder many times a day but I have not seen another do it since that year. Here it is March 6th and we had a low of 6 below F. this morning with a windchill around minus 30 F. Sure be glad when it warms up. Take care. andy74

Dawg, those are really nice. The blurred background and the clarity of the Robin really make a beautiful set of shots. Nice going!
