    This friendly wee Robin came bob bob bobbing along the other day during the first snows of an Aberdeenshire Winter.

    Always good to see our little friend. Even down here the birdbaths were all frozen this morning.
    The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

      I had a wee giggle to myself when this girl came along and asked what I was taking pictures of.
      When I pointed out the Robin she said that it was the first one she had seen this year and if they arrive this early it is a sign of a harsh winter to come

        Hi Stephen, it is a fine photo and looks in tiptop condition, if I had taken that shot, I would be tempted to print it on personalised christmas cards for close relatives and friends.

          That is really sharp, lots of detail in the face & best feathers. How close was he?

              Good shout Raymondo
              I have produced a few Christmas Cards in the past.
              Here are a couple of Robin Christmas Cards from previous years
              Sorry, not Olympus but thought I'd share them for showing purposes

                He looks like a plucky little fellow. Nice and sharp too.

                    1st photo is rather good for a cheaper lens

                      Fantastic, that is so sharp too, the little 40-150R is a cracking lens.

                      I agree with the seasonal subject for cards this year
