Good shot david, lovely colouring and clarity.

A beautiful photo.This looks a very healthy bird with thick feathers and the eye is sharp and very bright.How on earth do you manage to take such good photos? Well done David.

Comment by: dot com on 18th February 2011 at 20:19

can we have a robin with same coloured feet ?

Comment by: Ken R on 18th February 2011 at 23:30

Coloured feet. Could be that one is in shadow and the other in sun.

Thanks everyone for your comments ,
Maureen Topping ,photographing birds is a bit hit and miss ,but robins do, most of the time keep still,it was taken about 8ft away ,good light,fast shutter speed,the sun was to the right so one leg is in the shade I expect making it a different colour.Thanks ...
