Not what you would consider a hunter but, he really did pretty well. Robins, to me, aren't the most exciting or pretty bird to shoot. But this one seemed to be proud and was nice enough to pose for me for only a couple of shots. 20D 100-400mm @400mm iso 400 f/6.3 1/125 EC +1

The beak and worm/centipeed (?) looks overexposed. Otherwise, it is very sharp and clear. Very nice capture.

Gospel, thanx!!! Yes, i noticed the beak and caterpillars were overexposed. i wasn't sure how to handle that. i was going to try some selective brightness and/or contrast on it but, wasn't sure how to do it without messing it up. so i just left it as is.

Very nice Dennis. I agree that beak part is over-exposed.

That's a very nice robin shot. Exposure is often a tough call, isn't it. The detail in the dark part of the bird came out so nicely because of the brighter exposure that over exposed the beak and worm a bit. I think in this case, since so much of the shot is forcused on the body of the bird, it seems to work very well.
