[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took a drive to the gorge this morning to get some scenic shot and for some resin it just wasn't working out. I was messing up every shot I took. I think we mite have all had one or two days like that,maybe? Any way,So I gave up on that and started messing around with these Robins at one of the parks. There was a bunch of them running around pulling worms out of the ground. I liked this one with that expression as he was getting tired of me interrupting his hunting. Thanks for looking.

Hello Tom,

You have chosen a fine low POV to take this photo. You have got a good perspective over the bird. In the well lit area you have rendered nice saturated colors. To me overall contrast is rather strong but this is a matter of taste.

Thank you for sharing,

  • Great

Excellent low POV on this shot Tom,
Love the sharp detail and nice pose you captured. Good exposure with natural colors.
I too get fascinated whenever I watch robins going after worms in our yard. They run a few steps and stop, cock their heads to one side and then draw back and thrust their bills into the ground. They rarely come up empty handed (or should I say empty beaked). TFS.

hello Tom

the American Robin is one of my favorite birds,
