Got these photos of Robins in a field near one of my favorite birding spots.
Maybe it is just a timing thing, but recently I have been seeing more and
larger colonies of Robins in different areas. Maybe spring really is around the
corner. All photos taken with Drebel and 100-400L IS USM @ 400, ISO 200,
Av mode.

1/200 sec, f/7.1

Hi Woodmeister. Those are really very good shots. They put the ones I posted a while back to shame. I'm spotting them pretty often now myself. Just haven't made a good capture yet.

Good work

The detail and exposure in your shots is superb.
Ahhh.... Spring. I can't wait.

High performance shots woodmeister, almost too sharp, :-)and most of us would love to be able to get a criticism like that. It's easy to blur down but real difficult to sharpen up. It would be great if those worm eatin'robins would hop up into a tree every now and then in order for us photogsto be able to get a really interesting background too.

Thanks for all the comments. I know what you mean Norm. That's why I
did the tight crop on these guys, a large area of grass for a background
just isn't all that exciting.
