You had snow? Lucky *** ;)
Nice crisp shot with sufficient DoF to get all the important parts of the Robin in focus.

Thanks both, but it's not snow, just a really sharp frost this morning.

Here we go. Amazing shot! Incredible detail <3
Many thanks

Very nice robin, nice and sharp, plenty of detail, really stands out.
Thanks.

Aha, proof that the forum software softens images. The Flickr click through is a tad sharper on the eye. Very nice capture in some nice bright light. The black background is a bit pixelated and splotchy on my monitor though. I'd also prefer to see a bit more space to the (camera) left. Was the square presentation with a central subject a deliberate choice?

Thanks for the CC. Yes, I had the square crop in mind when I made the image; the background is perfectly fine on my monitor, both here and on Flickr (anyone else get 'splotchy' pixelation?) it could be your monitor(?)

Hi Jim @FlyPhot ... nice find, good subject colour & detail. Slightly odd seeing a robin with a black & blue BG. But the harsh backlight works. :)

I like the light, very wintery low light, worth a click through to flickr, nice start to the year.

Ah, Robins, the supermodels of the wildlife photography world -- they let you get close, they strike numerous poses, they are photogenic. Britain's favourite bird...and well-taken in the frost.

First off the mark - and a very nice image. Very seasonal, very sharp and plenty of detail. The pose of the bird is great.

Thanks :D

Nice detail in the feathers. The snow on the beak really gives it something.

Cheers Nick. You can even see bits of frost falling off the beak if you look closely.

Lucky you getting some snow it makes your shot picture perfect, super detail and a smashing start to your thread.
Thanks Susie, it wasn't actually snow, just a very heavy frost.

Great shot and level of detail, anytime I'm trying to get pictures of birds all I do is hear them but never see them anywhere near the range of my camera. Definitely has a Christmas card look about it

Thanks Stuart. I was very lucky with this one, it seemed really tame and I managed to get very close.
