Erithacus Pavarotti, a special breed of robins...known for their keen ability to sing and impress the ladies.
They appear in spring and do their thing for a while. After impressing the ladies, they turn into the common Erithacus Rubecula until the next spring when the full moon will turn them once again into the Pavarotti monster.

This is continuing my series of robins:

Da, te invidiez din nou pentru astfel de cadre. Bravo. In afara de faptul ca mi se pare cam rosu totul e OK. Bravo si domnului Pavarotii pentru ca se lasa pozat. Felicitari.
Imi place si compozitia si suportul subiectului si fundalul, totul. Bravo. Cezar.

Sal Catalin,
Ce sa zic,cred ca e cea mai tare imagine postata de tine pe tnt,compozitia culorile si momentul surprins sunt de invidiat!

Hello Catalin,
A funny caption and an equally funny note on this lovely Erithacus Rubecula singing full-throated like Pavarotti to please the ladies :-)!
Excellent capture and a very lively and colourful image. The bokeh BG is superb.

Hi Catalin, what a cracking photo of this special Robin, it is lucky for me that I understand the humour of the Irish. You are a very naughty person. It is a beautiful shot and I yearn like a howling wolf to be there.

Hi Catalin
Nice and sharp pîcture with beautifull colours.I also like the POV.

Hi Catalin,
the best with this picture is the nice action and the good POV, the compostion is also good. But I think you have used
NI little too much, the details especially inthe breast looks daubt. There is also some OE spots and the contrats is a bit hard. It's pity this picture has potential too be a great one. I think you should check you monitor.

HI Catalin!
What an amazing view and clearness, great photo with magnificent POV!Colors are beautiful and focus perfect!

Pretty good shot here because of the 'action' of it.
A little soft in focus for me but the colors are lovely.

Bonjour Catalin
Très belle prise, excellentes couleurs et netteté Bravo
Amicalement Robi

Hello Catalin,
I'm glad to discover your site. This interesting portrait is of the species Erithacus ramazzotti really, because it sings of love, the whole day long; E. pavarotti is more specialized in dramatics. I like your sense of humour. Thank you for presenting this great pic.

Great capture and great note, Catalin. I can almost here him! It is a super composition with the off center bird and the wonderful thorny branches.

Evelynn : )

Hello Catalin.

Very good details.

Jose Luis.
