[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pitirross is the maltese word for the Robin. It derives from the Italian pettorosso. These birds migrate to Malta in Autumn and spend the winter here, filling our valleys and gardens with their beautiful song. One of their favourite haunts is the carob tree which is rather common in Malta. A strange characteristic of this bird is that besides being very territorial, each individual always occupies the same tree every time they return.
Shot was taken at full zoom - x12 and in very low light conditions. Adjusted contrast and gamma post-capture

Hi Mark.
You have shared a very nice, delicate and lovely shot. I am impressed by soft and clear colours of your picture, wonderful lighting and rich beautiful BG. My best regards and TFS.

Hello Mark,
Lovely Robin and a wonderful shot despite difficult conditions.
However, felt a strong urge to do a workshop; to present this beautiful bird slightly diffrently. Hope you will forgive for the trespass.
Thanks and take care, my friend.
