Never before I could come so close to a robin. I guess the distance between the bird and me was about two and a half meters.
Hope you like this "giant" robin.

I like it Zeno! You must be pleased with this. Good exposure and composition. Your Robin is detailed and in nice pose. And I like the blurred BG. Well done, TFS

Nice close-up and the multi-coloured background lends very good support.

Hi Zeno, great composition with good colour, DOF and sharpness. TFS.

Hello Zeno. A pleasing BG. Great color and light. Nice pose and POV. Good detail & sharpness..Well done.

This is a really fine work, Zeno.
The colours are warm and saturated and the DOF is right what is needed.

Regards, Petru

Hi Zeno,
I'm soooo jealous, you show us such a wonderful bird, so sharp so pretty colours.
I also have many birds in my garden, but a robin only came one time this year and so short that I only could take a bad shot.
So thanks for your lovely one, bye

Hi Zeno,
beautiful shot, lucky you to come so close, a wee bit soft maybe. I've often seen them, but never was quick enough with the camera. Love the nicely blurred BG with the different hue of red behind the bird's head. Very nice pose too.
Great capture!
