    Nice pics.
    I love Robins, they often save a fruitless walk through the woods. I'm also a fisherman and some of my best robin pictures are taken when they perch on the rods while looking for spilled bait.

    Lool, yes, i did take 500+ shots that day, mostly mediocre stuff, nothing fantastic, there was this little group of 10 shots of this robin which came to see what i was doing, having grown up with parents that had allotments i wasn't surprised at how friendly they are (just wondering if i dug up a few worms), so yeah happy to have one for a nice pic.
    there were two robins together at the time so probably a mating pair? as i have heard they are pretty territorial
    thanks

    went back to the cemetery today, got a nice surprise, we has two different woodpeckers there, got a very far off pic of a greater spotted, was so far away i had to boost it in Photoshop to see what it was, and a green woodpecker which was being very elusive, just a head shot of that one, i'll post pics when i get a nice image, could be a while but the chase will be fun.
    oh and not to mention the 400 pics of the cemetery fox family, I'll have to post some of them too, when i checked the uploads half way through there was a fox poking its tongue out at me.

    Isn't it fantastic when you get caught up in the moment on what you are photographing, and you don't quite notice your surroundings. Well done and nice images.

    Hey Caladina, I hope you don't mind me adding a picture to your Robin thread. As much to see if it works as anything.:oops:

    Thanks.
    No, my previous camera, a 750d. (I was having doubts about it's performance - the guys on here helped me prove there was nothing actually wrong with it, but my expectations of how it should be working! I had already decided to "upgrade" by that point though, and it's never stopped raining since I got the 80! :()
    Lens was an EFS 55-250. 1/400 f5.6 and ISO 400.
