RobinThis is an Amer­i­can Robin, a differ­ent bird to the Euro­pean Robin although named after it because of the red mark­ings.

I happened on it during my walk last week­end. It was a surpris­ingly brave bird and didn’t imme­di­ately fly away when I came blun­der­ing onto the scene. I wasn’t incred­i­bly close, but enough so that I could use my tele­photo lens to to get a halfway decent shot.

I think I misjudged the F stop though. Because although it focussed correctly the bird is not as sharply in focus as I would have liked. Of course a bigger zoom would have been a plus too, but that’s expen­sive… stop­ping down is free.
