Out on an early morning walk through the woods this morning I made a beautiful encounter with this little Robin which was on the path before me. He flew up into a tree nearby and allowed me to take a few shots with my Sigma 105mm macro lens before flying off.

  1. Lovely images and I’m so pleased to hear he/she was open to your presence and not skittish or fearful.

    (I know skittish usually refers to horses, but I think it is such a great descriptive word).

    1. Thank you, Vicki πŸ™‚ I love Robins for they appear to have no fear of us humans, and they tend to hang around a short while, and not always that far away like this little one did.

      1. Ahh, yes, I seem to remember how close the Robin appeared in the children’s book The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (one of my favourite children’s stories).

  2. For good or for ill, I still know the lyrics and the tune — but now I associate them with more than one species of robin. Lovely photos.

    1. Thank you, Ted πŸ™‚ I had my 70-300mm lens, but it was in my bag and not attached to the camera, so I used what was attached and at hand πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Sumyanna πŸ™‚ I find the Robins are one of the more braver and inquisitive of the birds here, and they sometimes stay quite near like this one did fortunately for me πŸ™‚
