continuing the theme a day in the life of scrag..............introducing scraglet, one of this years young who seems to have taken over the garden, not sure where the parents have gone. we missed scrag for over a week and noticed a few birds of prey in the area.
i hope this young robin survives the gauntlet, and becomes as tame as our last resident. had to take him lazing on the fence with a 300 tele.

Hi Sue . A good close up of the Robin but i dont think its this years they do not get their red until the first winter. Scrag may have gone into hideing to get his new feathers which is what they often do. any way its a good close up all the same. Its odd that so many birs stand on one leg not to sure why. You have good detail and natural colours. I like the odd leaves on the right hand side. well done TFS.

Hi Sue.
You managed to create a charming picture of a very cute bird at nice scenery. I like the composition a lot, wonderful delicate and at the same time rich colours, great details of the bird and leaves. May be DOF is a shallow a bit but light conditions were not very good. Excellent work, pleasant for look. My compliments.
