This is one of the nicest wildlife pictures I've ever seen Ron. Very well done!

Second try! How lovely to see a real robin; we don't see them here in Ontario, and have to make do with a kind of starling as a substitute. This comes just as we have had our first snow of the season.

Great photo. The robins we have in the US are huge things, not as photogenic as a British one.

Ellen,you have the same robins in Ontario as Catherine in the US says - huge things !

The "Robins" in Canada and the USA are really thrushes with a slightly coloured breast, nothing like the English Robin.
