This capture of a flame Robin is not only an indication of your skills but also that you invested in a fine lens.
Technically superb with a great OOF Bg, the telephoto bonus.
Hope the forest fires in the SE don't affect the staus of this rare and striking species.
Look forward to more from this new Sigma!

this is a wonderful shot of this Flame Robin, the vivid red feather of his breast stand out very well against the rest of his plumage and the dark BG
wonderful details of the birdpose and POV are superb
Have a good night

Wow, Chris... Just stunning!
The sharpness is amazing!
And the colors of that flame belly just jump out at you.
Beautifully presented against a blurred BG.
Good to see you again.

This is really a smacker, not only is the colours of this bird’s plumage truly awesome, the scene is just right. I really fancy this bird, as it is perfectly shaped and ever so beautiful. Your presentation is spot on, with great sharpness and focus and pleasant to look at. It stole my heart for beauty. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards.

An exceptional capture of this beautiful Flame Robin. It is red-hot and I just love it.
Technically well managed and produced. A spot-on DOV took care of all the detail.
It also ensured a well OOF and splendidly isolated BG which complimented the bird.
The colour saturation is slightly bumped up, yet still perfectly natural. The pleasing
composition is well proportioned while the subject provided a lovely posture.
Well done and TFS.
Am glad you got the new lens.

Simply charming birdy and amazing in all respects image. Fantastic reproduction of all features and details of the bird. Its image is isolated from BG superbly. Exposure of the shot is spot on as well as POV and composition. I like 3D-looking of the image. Bravo. Great job.
P.S. Many thanks for congratulations on 200th post.
