Hi Paul

What a splendid capture and shot of this beautiful cape robin.
The details on him are terrific and extreemly sharp, in good contrast with the blurry BG. That makes him stand our so nicely.
Also, the exposure is spot-on and that gave you all these right and wonderful colors and tones.
Superb composition!

Bravo and TFS
