Posing robins

One good thing about robins is that they will sit still for a portrait, unlike most other birds which are very fidgety.  This one was at Wallington in very poor light but I managed these at 1/50s with a 600mm lens.

These were at St Mary's, also at 1/50s and 600mm.  Modern digital cameras and stabilised lenses are pretty amazing.


  1. Latest info from Keith Bowey's excellent bird class is that orange tips on the primary coverts indicate this is a first year Robin. So much to learn!
