I'm glad you've got some blue sky now!! And this is a beautiful composition showing the colourful Robin up in the snow covered tree.
Great focus and beautiful light.
TFS and regards, Ulla

I guess the Robin was as happy to see the blue sky as you were! Wonder how much he likes the thick frost on the branches. You know this would be beautiful even without the bird but the wonderful Robin is a real bonus.

Lovely color combination, Bob, including your favorite blue.
Thank you for sharing this beauty, so different from our own winter.

in the first days of the new year i saw them in the forest
of the Boisé Papineau, i was amazed first time i see in winter,
then they are no more of them, maybe they went a place
where they will found more foods on the trees,
excelent photography with the red, the blue and the white
being matched to give a beautiful winter scenery,
i love the snows on the branches, TFS

Hi Bob. i bet it was nice to get out on a sunny day. The tree and the Robin look good against the bright blue sky. You have used the light so well. TFS.

I think this is one of your best images for this winter's storm effect. The image is very sharp and the colors are clear, crisp, and indeed COLD. The sign of the robin used to define that spring is near, but due the warming trend the Earth is experiencing nowadays, we often see them in the winter months in large numbers staying at home.

Certainly a good testimony of the A. Robin presence on this time of the year.
So nice the view of the snow over the branches, like a thick layer of a white coat.
I think there is another bird right down to the left?
Good to hear you're felling better. Take care.

It's a lovely photo of the bird in the tree, not very often do we see stuff like this, or atleast I don't usually and more often see them on the ground on snow or in the air. Thanks Bob for sharing. Hope you been feeling better!
:-) Cheers Josh Lewis.

Armed with the right arsenal and you see a bird perched nearby has always been considered lucky. The skill required in framing with the right exposure is another issue. You have capitalized on the opportunity really well of this bird on the snow covered branches against the saturated blue sky.
Well done and best regards,

I like the diagonal POV, sharpness & details of the subject. The lighting & composition with frost laden tree are superb. TFS.

I am more accustomed to seeing fluffy white apple blossoms and blue skies associated with these birds,but there is something special about the Turdus migratorious captured in the snow.
Lovely colours and beautiful setting.
Is it Spring yet?

Nice to see that you have a bit of life in your outdoor freezebox Bob,
You captured this Robin in great lighting among the snowy branches against a blue sky that looks promising 60 ft up!
Enjoyed Obama's speech!

Ahhhhh... an early harbinger of Spring! OK, maybe just a hungry robin. LOL!!
Nice capture and well processed.

Thought I'd better pop in for a visit, it's been awhile :)
Eye catching color scheme, and I like the snow covered branches against this clear blue BG.
I have three American Robins hanging around here at the moment, still working on a decent shot..Anyway,
Well done mf,

The robin is gorgeous. Shock of color against the blue winter sky. I like the way the ice and snow defines each little branch.
