i found this robin in the park a few hours ago.
(warm colors are due to the evening sunlight...)

The European Robin (Erithacus rubecula), or, in Anglophone Europe, simply Robin, is a small insectivorous passerine bird. Around 12.514.0 cm (5.05.5 in) in length, the male and female are similar in colouration, with an orange breast and face lined with grey, brown upperparts and a whitish belly. It is found across Europe, east to Western Siberia and south to North Africa; it is sedentary in most of its range except the far north.

The Robin is diurnal (active through the daytime), although has been reported to be active hunting insects on moonlit nights or near artificial light at night.

Hello Nikos,
There is very good light and clear colours. Very light BG suit to it only composition isn't good. The details on right and on left disturb.
