European Robin (Erithacus rubecula)

This photo was taken off of the window of my office, in one morning of full Spring of sun.

The birds hunted flyers in ground to lead for create them that they had in the nests. Before settling in ground they settled in the branches of these small trees to verify if it did not have danger.

In this photo was used the Canon 100-400mm + Extender 2X II, or either, the focalization was manual (very difficult due to proximity and to the impatience of the bird).

Very nice sharpness and color. Background is awesome, almost illuminating.

Good composition and posture.

Hi Paulo,

A perfectly neat image against a lovely background, Paulo.
You have managed the light very well in this shot.
Great POV, sharpness, colours and composition.
Thanks for your generous comment on my recent picture.

Bonjour Paulo,
Ce "Rougegorge familier" est admirablement mis en valeur par cet éclairage latéral et la bonne opposition du fonds qui font bien ressortir les couleurs et les détails. Très belle attitude de l'oiseau.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nousvelles aventures.

Hola Paulo,
Una foto muy bonita, la composición y el color son excelentes, la nitidez es buena y el fondo de lujo. Un cordial saludo

bonjour paulo
le BG est un peu trop vif a mo, avis mais le POV et les details sur ce rouge gorge font de l'ensemble une belle photo.
