[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
one more for the theme one of scrags many poses, in this one something has caught his eye, another bird most likely, and being the bully he is, will soon see them off, we have called the bird table, scrags diner and woe betide any other bird on it.
no point putting general info on robins when this is a diary of one character in particular.

Hi Sue,

Very nice shot. It is sharply focused and well exposed. You captured excellent detail in the feathers. Keeping the bird on the side, looking into the frame makes for a very effective composition.

TFS, Joel

Hi Sue,
I like this little robin as he looks to be a chipper clap and a handsome at that.You have captured him very well with the rich colour and that nice catch light in his eye and the focus is spot on as well.Tfs. Bob

Hi Sue,
a sharp and well composed shot.
TFS Joey

Hi Sue,
Excellent capture of this bird!
I like your POV and the pose catched on the bird, very interesting the way he looks to the sky.
It seems also a little surprised by your presence, and how inspecting you.
I like so much the colorful background and the softly way it is blurred.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
