Nice composition Yves and I agree he does have that perfect posture. Interesting that you have captured the Robin sitting on a gravestone, I had read once that Robins have been associated with new beginnings.

Thank you Debra. And thanks also for the new beguinings interpretation. I like it very much and will make it mine.

He does look like he's standing at attention maybe in honour of a passing soul, Yves. The second gravestone helps to fill the view and adds to the composition.

The robin is the only bird I know that stand up with the wings touching the ground like that. I wander why. May be it help sensing worms vibration of the ground. Anyway, it gives the guy a prety nice military look.
