<a href="" rel="attachment wp-att-115447">Robin 600x485 RobinThis is an Amer­ican Robin, a different bird to the Euro­pean Robin although named after it because of the red markings.

I happened on it during my walk last weekend. It was a surpris­ingly brave bird and didn't imme­di­ately fly away when I came blun­dering onto the scene. I wasn't incred­ibly close, but enough so that I could use my tele­photo lens to to get a halfway decent shot.

I think I misjudged the F stop though. Because although it focussed correctly the bird is not as sharply in focus as I would have liked. Of course a bigger zoom would have been a plus too, but that's expen­sive… stop­ping down is free.
