The European Robin (Erithacus rubecula) or, in Europe, simply Robin is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family, but is now considered to belong to the Old World flycatchers (Muscicapidae). European Robins and similar small European species are often called chats.

It occurs all over Europe to Western Siberia, south to Algeria and on the Atlantic Ocean as far as the Azores and Madeira. In the south east, it reaches the Caucasus range.

Hi Annick

What a charming shot of this cute robin!
I really like seeing him in the middle of his habitat and on the groud (most of the photos being somewhere up in the trees).
Is this a handheld shot? Because if it is, it's a terrific job in terms of sharpness, especially if i take into considerration the focal lenght.
Anyway, it's taken from a great POV and it's composed very beautifully.

Bravo and TFS

Hello Annick

We don't have these robins in N America.They are so cute.A well focused shot with lovely colour saturation.Good composition and POV.TFS


Hi Annick,
Quite a nice shot of this colourful Robin. Depth of field a bit short. Sharp eye has a catchlight and a reflection. A lower camera position might have helped. I think rotating the picture over to the right looks better.

Hello Annick,
Lovely capture of Robin showing his beautiful plumage and long legs! Very nice focus on the eye and good sharpness. Beautiful natural colours too and I like the soft background.
Many thanks, Ulla

On ditait qu'il prend la pose !
Bonne journée.

What a pose Annick, lol! You capture it in a very good timing and I like this colors saturation, compo and POV. This DOF is very interesting too. This is a nice one and I wish that we have this bird here but WE DON'T ;) Thanks,

Hello Annick,
Excellent composition. Very good focus concerning quite long exposure time and the focal length. Nice control of DOF.
Best greetings,

HI Annick,
I like this little robin as it has such nice colouration compared to the robins I know.Your photo shows a very alert little one with a wonderful catch light in it's eye.The background works well and the depth of field is very tight,nice photo.TFS. Bob
