After the backview here is the frontview of the Robin
(Erithacus rubecula) that came to get its share
out of the nut-fat-stick.

it can do other tricks, like hanging upside-down -
example posted in the workshop-section.

Hi Thorsten,

This robin is very cute and the colours are bright and warm. I like the way it looks into your direction. Well done!

Great shot and comforting at the same time - we have a robin that can negotiate 2 squirrel proof 'fences' and still o'hover' top ppick up a sunflower seed...

Good to see some else with an acrobatic robin - do you have any chaffinches doing the same trick? Isn't it amazing what a bird can learn to do to get at food.

The shot is also so clear and I love the really long toes!

Hi Thorsten, great shot. Good detail with excellent colour and well composed within the frame. TFS.

Sooooo süüüüüß, Thorsten, außerdem wunderbar scharf, ganz toll erwischt. Bei mir lassen sich nur noch Bergfinken blicken - die kommen dafür in Scharen!
Bin heute von meinem Osterbesuch bei den Schwiegereltern zurückgekommen - und dabei wohl fast an Deiner Haustüre vorbeigefahren. Sie wohnen in Meerbusch - zwischen Neuss und Krefeld, kennst Du bestimmt.
Am Samstag war ich in Hamm im Schmetterlingshaus, es war wundervoll, die nächste Zeit kommen also einige Schmetterlinge in TN hereingeflattert ;-) Viele Grüße - hoffentlich hast Du alle Ostereier gefunden, tschüssi

Hi Thorsten
Great capture of this acrobatic and resourceful little chap. And we call intellectually challenged people 'bird brains'.
The composition is great and the colours are stunning. The DOF is spot-on showing sharp details. The BG is marvellous and it totally enhancing the bird. The exposure was perfectly handled.
Great work and TFS.

Hello Thor,
Good shot! The POV is really nice here. Picture has some good details and very nice colours. I just think there's a bit too much free space here.
Overall, well done on this one!

Hi Thorsten,
I like the POV, and you have some eye contact going on here..Sharp detail, with great DOF, color, and light..
Well done on this & TFS!

I love your robin here Thor, hanging on tightly to the food bag. Cute bird, well captured, and I like her colours,

Hi Thorsten,
Nice to meet your here too.
Great shot of that nice little robin. He hold the position just for you.

Hi Thorsten,
Very nice shot.
Excellent composition, colors, details and sharp.
Well done. :-)

Hi Thorsten

Wow, sharp sharp and sharp, i like it, everything is perfect, i didn`t know that this lens can be sharp like this, wooow, nice shot with great POV and DOF.
well done


THe little fellow looks like he i ready for his close up, so funny! Like the way you have leave lots of negative space. I would have approached it having more of the net. But that is just me. Great capture!


A charming and beautiful shot. I wonder how many photos on TN share it's title?!
Great background, good composition and perfect exposure.
