Singing robin

I don't often photograph birds, because quite frankly I am rubbish at it. But I couldn't resist snapping this happy little robin, even though I had my macro lens on, as usual.

    Super little chap. What a lovely photo, Rachael. Love the highlights of light on the web too.

    I especially love the aspect of shooting through the foliage. It provides such a lovely, soft border that gently nudges our eyes to settle on the robin.
