    Not sure if this is an immature Robin or if it just molting, but the breast coloring is definitely different from what you usually see.

    All shot with the D2H / 300 2.8 + TC-17EII (hand held!!).

    Hey Frank!
    I got the same critter at the park today, he was hanging out with a bunch of other Robins that had normal colors, but he (She?) looked so odd I wasn;t sure it was the same breed.

    twig,

    Yeah, I noticed that you had one too just before I posted mine. I think that Mike is correct, and that these are juveniles.

    Thanks,

    twig,

    I shot at ISO 320. The shutter speed was between 1/125 and 1/250. BTW, I misstated the lens / TC that I was shooting with. It was the 1.4 not the 1.7 TC, so the focal length was 420mm, not 510mm. Still pretty tough to hand hold at those shutter speeds.
     
  7. Nice images Frank, #1 is my favorite.
     
  8. Super shots Frank. I especially like the first three. Looks like a young Robin.

    Looks like a baby Frank :>))

    very nice shots.

    Good Job.
     
  10. Very sharp pictures, what a nice backgroud for #1 picture, very subdue pastel colors.
     
  11. Wow! Quite impressive to hand-hold at such low speed for the FL and get such a clean, crisp result! My favorite is the first pic, with the droplet on his beak and the feet in the water...
