Nice composition and an interesting setting on this shot, Yves. Robins are unique in a number of ways it seems. I especially like the pose you caught him in here standing very much at attention for a very nice capture.

Thank you Heather. This is the exact pose they take on the ground when they sense vibrations for worms. Of course he is not sesing anything on that big rock. But that pose is so natural for him.

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.
