Default Eastern yellow robin

Took this pic of an eastern yellow robin [Eopsaltria chrysorrhoa] as it was sunning itself early in the morning at the Dorrigo National Park. It's about the only time I've ever seen one sit still for more than half a second.

Can't make up my mind which I prefer ....

C&C welcome

Great shots! I like the first one, I think the green leaves in the background compliments the beautiful bird.

Very pretty bird. We do not have that species in the states.

Saly - yes, I see what you mean. Thank you for that.

Steven we have 17 different species of robins in three different families so I guess we are spoilt. Do you have a pic of your American robin?

Hi Bernice, I always seem to be the last one to the party. I like the crop best, but I thought it might be better without the twig in the foreground, so I took the liberty to remove it. I did it quick to see how it would look, so it could be done better with more care. Hope you don't mind!

Hawgwild you may currently be last but definitely not least. Thank you for the edit. I don't mind at all — just wish I knew how to do it myself. Don't have any of the higher-powered editing programs. I have Lemke's Graphic converter (a Mac only program) and am slowly learning the intricacies of this.

Appreciate your feedback.

Thanks

Bernice
