My Resident Robin

He is very friendly and would sell his soul for a dried mealworm,and in the last image at 300mm he was nearly to close to focus on and hence the narrow DOF.

Taken with the E-M5 and 75-300mm wide open processed in CO8.

ISO 250


ISO 1600

Cracking shots Paul.

How long did it take to get him used to taking the mealworms with you around?

Thank you Davy, that's down to the wife,she said I can get him to come close I just stood there with the camera while she enticed him,when he came that close in the last one it took me by surprise or I would have stopped down for more dof..if he comes that close I'll be using the 75mm f1.8 next time.

Re: My Resident Robin

I have little interest in birds of the feathered variety, but these shots are exquisite. And we know the special magic of your PPing, which i find informative and helpful.

Thank you Chevvy, most of my wildlife photography is done in the garden these days as I find it hard to walk more than a hundred yards unaided, so i am thankful to have a nice garden that attracts birds.

I'm sorry to hear about your health issues Paul, I don't know what to say other than to wish you well and to hope for improvement.

Re: My Resident Robin

Thank you Steve. as some of the older members may know including Chevvy I had this problem over a year ago when they gave me 2 to 6 months to live but I beat it into remission in July but now its back again and I'm fighting the good fight once again. Please do not feel sorry for me because I don't.

Thank you Chevvy and I have a lot of wonderful assistants (family) who will be taking me out when the weather improves so I can do what I love best (photography) and yes the the Grandkids are just fine and still a source of enjoyment for me and photographic opportunities.

The first is wonderfully pictured within such an ornate and exquisite 'entwrinement', Paul (if I may coin such a word!).
