I would have preferred, of course, for all of the bird to have been visible but I was on the ground photographing foraging Blackbirds when this Robin landed on the bird table above me, so the perspective was never going to work. That said, I still like the composition, the clarity and, particularly, the helpful role played by the background colour.
