Robin in a dreamy light

I saw this Robin perched on a branch in a clearing in a wood on the way back from my first Adder sighting of the year. The light filtering through the foliage was glorious and the bird – always alluring, always cute – here also seemed unusually elegant. The result is, I think, a very pleasing composition.

  1. I think what makes the pictures work is the fact that the face is highlighted both times, together with the good background. They are both very good.

  2. These are superb images Tim, just love the positioning of the subject and the great bokeh.
