    That is really a beautiful shot and birdie. One of my favorite birds. Not seeing them in Florida often. Only when migrating. Have yet to get a decent shot.
     
  5. Lovely shot, beautiful bird. Songbirds are quickly becoming my favorite pursuit.

  6. Gale, this is a European Robin, not at all the same bird as our American Robin, although they both do have a red breast (hence, I think, how "ours" was named!) :biggrin: If you saw one of these in migration you'd better report it to the local Rare Bird Alert, LOL :wink: And you're right, the American Robin is not so common in Florida as it is up here, that's for sure!
     
  7. Fantastic I love shooting songbirds and this is top shelf look forward to more posts

    Ales,

    Excellent shot. As Janet said, a little different than the native species here in NA. A little smaller, but still very pretty.

    Thanks for comment. I like to photograph birds, but I don't have right equipment. I only have Sigma 70-300mm bird photography. All birds looks like a spot on Images. I managed to get close to it after a lot of time. I went to park almost every day in winter and give food to it (and other birds). It was shy at first, and after 3 months It almost eat from hand. It came to about 1m(3feet?) or less.

    I manage to shoot it. I have a few other spicies, but nothing special. (I managed some swan shots, but not in flight). For now I mainly watch (and feed) birds.

    Ales


    Regards, Ales
