[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This baby (actually a juvenile) robin was just moulting its youngster feathers and I bet it was itchy all over.

It allowed me really close and was a great subject.
In the heat of the moment I forgot all the rules about framing and today I find myself with a way too tight framing. I agree, there is not enough room above the head but I like it anyway.
I think it shows the birds surprise when it spotted me so close to it ;)

TFW and its good to be back after a long vacation.

Hello Catalin,
This framing and proximity are OK to me :) Details and colors are amazing and so is this exposure. This is a very nice picture of this cute baby. Birds are actually molting here too. I have seen Cardinals and Blue Jays molting and they look very strange with sometimes, only one feather left on their head :) Thanks,

Salut Catalin,
Bine ai revenit! Excelenta captura, foarte faine detalii si culori deosebite, poate un pic de spatiu daca mai lasai in partea de sus... oricum o imagine super.



Hi Catalin, wonderfull colors very well satured, perfect focus with many details, exposure is great, I like so much the pose oh this beautifull juvenile robin, good composition and good note,

This close up is nicely seen Catalin. I like to see the detail on feathers like this.
Very nice POV and frame.
