Robin (30th Nov 2010)



I was feeding the birds and this lovely robin was a frequent visitor.  He is perfect for a Christmas card, but was so hard to get a good photo of – I have plenty of duds!  This is another photo taken with the 55-300mm lens, and I took it through my back window.

In the depths of winter the sun doesn’t rise high enough to get into the back garden, so although it was a bright sunny day I didn’t have to contend with the harsh highlights and shadows that direct sunlight would produce.
