[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The European Robin (Erithacus rubecula), most commonly known in Anglophone Europe simply as the Robin, is a small insectivorous passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family (Turdidae), but is now considered to be a chat. Around 12.5–14.0 cm (5.0–5.5 in) in length, the male and female are similar in colouration, with an orange breast and face lined with grey, brown upperparts and a whitish belly. It is found across Europe, east to Western Siberia and south to North Africa; it is sedentary in most of its range except the far north.
The term Robin is also applied to some birds in other families with red or orange breasts. These include the American Robin (Turdus migratorius), which is a thrush, and the Australian red robins of the genus Petroica, members of a family whose relationships are unclear.

Always nice to see our typical winter bird in this time of the year. A photo in very good sharpness, details and beautiful natural colours, although the conditions were difficult. Great choice of composition.

Hello Nuri,
One of the finest images I've ever seen of the European Robin. Love the composition and outstanding detail. Colors are true and natural and the blurred BG with just a few flakes of snow make it such an attractive presentation. Great job!!
