I thought I'd delay further posts of the Blackbird fledgelings as there may have been some dramatic developments......
This little robin is also a regular visitor to my garden, in fact it's nearly always visiting the same time as the parent blackbird, and I've sometimes wondered if it's a foster parent!

I missed to see this beautiful bird here, for some months...
one of my favourite...
really so cute...
nicely composed...
thanks for sharing Andy...

The focus is perfectly set on the bird, which is well positionned. The remainder of the photograph is a little drabe however.

Superb shot Andy!
Perfect POV and composition with the bowl in the center.
Pity that the bowl isn't empty - then the sad colours and gloomy mood would gave the impression a bit more suitable for your title. Though I think the robin is really happy that it is full ;-)
I like the photo very much.

Hello Andy

Great shot of this hungry wee bird. Good POV. The catchlight in the eye is perfect. Well done.

Hello Andy,

This is a very nice capture. The Robin is very sharp, very well exposed and has great colors. The BG is very nicely blurred and oof. I also think this picture has a very strong composition and the robin poses perfectly. I have one nit and that's the white plate ... it distracts a little, although it's not OE. Anyway, all in all a great picture. TFS!


What a perfect little robin he is, Andy.
Beautiful shot with great details, good color and POV.
Thank you for a fine posting.

hello Andy

A great photo of this little Robin.
He doesn't look like he is too hungry though.
I am sure he benefits from your kindness.
Great photo.
Thanks for sharing it with us.
