The Quintessential Songbird
Oh! This is a cute one... reminds me of Frédéric's one on TE.
Roodborstje tikt tegen 't raam, tin, tin, tin
Laat mij er in, laat mij er in
't Is hier te guur en te koud naar mijn zin
Laat mij erin, tin, tin, tin...
Beautiful picture of a lovely bird, that's the kind of picture I would like to be able to make once...
Very well done Callie, thank you!
Now you post this when I have no more points, but I dont mind comming back to this tomorrow and the day after .... This is a stunning shot even though it is not your normal sharpness - I think it can be attributed to being taken through glass. I couldn't resist doing a workshop - Hope you like it
Nice shot! I love the composition, but I do wish it was sharper - obviously I'm impressed that you managed 1/25th at 400mm though. Yes, they do follow gardeners around - we flush out insects and worms, so we're a good generator of food. I think the closest I've been to our robin is about 1ft (30cm) - of course I never have a camera on me at the time! Good note as usual :-)

Nice composition and colors, Callie.
Unsharp, yes, but with many reasons.

Hi Callie some people may argue with you over it being The Quintessential Songbird some think it to be the Nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos) though to be honest I`ve never seen one they are so rare today.
Notes as usual are superb the picture does look very soft though which is a shame as he composition is spot on as are the colours.

Very nice one, Callie. The robin seems to be a little out of focus, but 400 mm at 1/25 tells a lot to that respect. The posture and the rendition of the beautifully colored plumage are priceless. Good shot.

Con un apodo u otro, tus imagenes son siempre llamativas.
Hermosa captura Callie.
Excelentes colores y encuadre para exhibir un ave tan particular.
With a nickname or another one, your images are always gaudy.
Beautiful capture Callie.
Excellent colors and frame to exhibit a so particular bird.

Those birds are really so cute Callie. The way they stand to wide aparta with there legs just make them so charming. I think this one is a bit softer then your photos usualy are. It looks more like a bit of motion blur to me, rather then a soft focus. I could be wrong of course :). Anyway, it is a lovely bird and a fine shot, but i know you can do even better.

Surrounded by cheetahs this little robin red-breast really stood out in your thumbnail gallery, Callie. Beautiful shot, with great colours. Well captured.

A very good composition on this one. Not your sharpest but good. I'm glad to see an European Robin. Quite different as ours in North America. Ours is ( 23-28cm )with head and tail black or gray, dark gray back and brick-red breast.
