Studland Bay 7/7

And now for something completely different, and not a subject I usually do much of. As we sat enjoying lunch outside the tearoom this delightful little Robin decided to join us, looking for crumbs of course, and he/she remained still enough for me to take several shots, this being probably the best of them.

A fine shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
Your little English Robins are such a joy! Beautiful shot, Brian! Thanks for the accompanying music! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, they are cute little birds but can be quite aggresive if another bid invades their territory.

a very nice image - the robins/Rotkehlchen do visit me daily on my balcony.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, we occasionaly get one in our garden, but this time of year we usually have a resident Blackbird.
A lovely portrait Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
Your robin and the tenor sax have opened my day perfextly! Thanks, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased to hear I've started your day off in a good fashion Mary, I hope it continues in that way.
a beautiful little robin it is Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Cute little character.
you certainly got some lovely details at this close range, Brian. i am afraid i do not have the limitless patience needed for birding.
Brian Walbey: It sat on the fence right next to our table while we had lunch together with another little bird, they were waiting for crumbs etc.from the table, I guess they are quite tame so it was taken with my little compact camera.

I do hope your rewarded the little think for its patience. Its a fine shot and I hoe it will encourage you to do more of this genre. That usually involves a huge lens which weighs about about 3 tons, though sad
Brian Walbey: As you probably know sitting out at that tearoom the little birds come right up to the table so I didn't have any problems taking this, therew as also another little bird right next to it.
Great shot, Brian - always take the opportunity offered!
Brian Walbey: Sitting almost on the end of the table as we sat having lunch outside the tearoom, probably a permanent perch when the place is open.
A nice catch, I guess you used a canvas even if you have to be close to it, strange because in robins are pretty wary. I have one that always jumps on my terrace but as I do to get closer only a little disappears.
Brian Walbey: This was sitting almost on the end of our table as we sat outside enjoying our lunch, no doubt waiting for any scraps we left over, as they do smile
