I took this photo of an American Robin while up at Magee Marsh. I felt a little awkward because everyone else was ranting and raving about all the many different types of warblers, and here I am shooting a robin.

Oh well!! I thought he was beautiful, even if everyone else seemed to ignore him!! Actually I shot some more robin photos today...just a warning!!!

Hi Ron,

I would pass on the Warblers for the Robin too - especially since there are none here in Tucson. He is beautiful and you captured him in a wonderful pose on the I don't know what. Vivid colors and good details of his head, red breast and wings. He jumps out from the blurred background.


Hi Ron,
I realize that robins are fairly common around here, but that almost makes them invisible. The color is striking and the shallow DOF does a nice job separating him from the BG. Composition is a bit centered in the square crop - perhaps a portrait crop might be a slight improvement. Very nice shot overall.

Hello Ron,
Great sharp detailed photo of this robin. Beautiful clear colours. Good composition and POV.

Great color. Wonderful how you got so close to this guy. Robins are just as beautiful as the 'exotics' you see posted. And in my neck of the woods, Robins are really so common. I dont' think I've ever seen any out here in the country.

Hmmm the Canon does a nice job of defining the bird and nothing else but retaining the earth tonal backgrounds Ron...and it is the Robin I remember...we see them out here too..but not as state bird...What is ours again? Cardinal...I forget...I mean ours as in the Buckeye State!

Ron, an absolutely beautiful shot of a very common bird. You caught this guy/gal in just the right frame and background. How long did you have to wait for this shot? Just curious, because I have spent sometimes an hour waiting for the right moment, only to be disappointed when the shot I wanted didn't appear. Great catch!!!


hello Ron

the American Robin is one of my favorite birds,
excellent & beautiful photo shot with fine POV & framing,
beautiful luminosity with beautiful warm colour tones
of the photo, excellent sharpness and details of the plumage
and the bird's head part (beak & eye), wonderful eye-contact,



Hi Ron,

A nice portrait of this almost mundane species, shows there's beauty to be had in the common things that we tend to take for granted.


Good photo, nice colored tone and
excellent details

Wonderful capture sir....
