American Robin

Robins are perhaps the commonest birds around here. I can’t count the number times I’ve spotted something move from the corner of my eye to realize it is another Robin. This particular bird was rather brave, instead of flying away from us it simply hopped about, maintaining a constant distance from us.

I love this photograph, definitely a keeper. For me the framing, the colors and the exposure are just perfect. If I could change one thing about it, it would be the perspective – I wish I’d been a bit lower while taking the photo.
