Hi everybody!
He is the one! The lucky one that won MonaLisa's heart. And I can see why. He is so handsome and apparently a good singer ;) (or so I have heared).
They both share a territory and seem to be happy. He is a bit shy and would not let me close to him.
He is covering MonaLisa in tasty gifts. Worms, bugs and whatever he can find and MonaLisa stays in touch with him through constant calling. When he sings she listens charmed.
Later I will post pictures of MonaLisa listening to his love calls and begging for food.
I hope I will be able to take pictures of their young later in the year.
Love has done it again!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Catalin, this is an excellent shot of the Robin, you are right he is indeed a very handsome one! You have caught the light on the Robin wonderfully, I love the POV showing his shiny beak. All very sharp with good DOF and colour. Please keep us informed of the happy couple's progress.

Hello Cataline

Great picture of this little beauty. I am sure Mona Lisa will be happy to be his girlfriend - he really looks handsome:-). To find out who ML was I had to go back in you archive and find her - she is nice looking too. Excellent focus, sharpness and dof with a well blurred background to set the Robin off nicely. This kind of pictures easyli end up as hotch-potch because of all the twigs around the subject but you did well. He looks great in his new silvery tuxido and his rusty shirt. The composition is perfect. All over a most beautiful picture.


Salut Catalin,

E una dintre cele mai reusite fotografii, daca nu cea mai reusita, cu aceasta minune de pasare. Imi place totul la fotografie, mai ales subiectul si crenguta pe care sta. Despre fundal si lumina: excelente. Bravo. Numai bine si felicitari pentru a 50-a fotografie postata.

Hi Catalin, I can see from the exposure settings that you wanted to capture every detail on this bird. You did succeed. Well composed and framed as well.

Good work, warm regards, Kiran.

Hi, Catalin.
Very nice shot of this beautiful bird. Light is excellent. Sharp. Lovely colors.
