A Robin at Christmas

I think the one bird that I and many associate with Christmas (apart from a Turkey) is the Robin. I've had plenty just recently outside my window and I've tried to capture them at numerous times in a nice Christmassy pose (if that makes sense). I'd failed miserably. Until Monday when I was off and looking for birds far more exciting. This little chap just appeared feet away from me, clearly checking me out to see what I was up to. So I just let him carry on his business and me mine and we enjoyed a good few minutes together. I think we were both happy. Me with my pictures and he was happy I was not causing any disturbance.
Merry Christmas Mr Robin and thanks for the pose.

  9. Really nice Robin pictures Adam. Robins do give us photographers a chance when their curiosity gets the better of them.
