The dear old Cock Robin!
A great shot, Dave. Its prey looks like a dragon fly. Are there any ponds or streams near there?

You got that one right John .A smasher.

Why are all the leaves on the bushes blurred if I had took that photo with my camera bird and leaves would be in focus

I reckon the Robin is one of the most photogenic of garden birds, congratulations on a very nice shot John.

Great shot John. Mick, the out of focus background comes from using a telephoto lens and a large aperture. It is called differential focus and effectively separates the subject from a distracting background.

Sorry folks, my compliment should have been to John!
Now did I turn the gas off?

Mick, John is taking a photo specifically of the robin not the leaves. If the leaves would have been in focus with your camera, the bird would lose some clarity. Garry put your brain into gear before opening your mouth about something you probably know very little about. It is a Tamron lens, David was asking did it include VC, which means vibration compensation, or to you 'less wobble', lol, the lens can be with or without VC. Great pic John, worth waiting for.

A good photo of the Robbin but it's not such a good moment for the fly !

Comment by: Dave (Oy) on 31st May 2015 at 13:42

Nice shot John. Looks like He/She's caught a Lacewing :)

Comment by: Aubrey on 31st May 2015 at 16:22

A photo worthy of the compliments made. Well done John

Reaply to Dave RE: Lense yes I think it is the VC lens. Thanks for the comment

Comment by: Blob on 1st June 2015 at 00:28

John H, you THINK it's the VC lense? it is or it isn't.

MR BLOBY can't spell, I said TAMERON. You spelled it TAMRON. Your a BLOB MR Bolby...plus it's nowt do with you.

Comment by: trevor on 1st June 2015 at 10:55

garry cant spell. its tamron, no 'e'

Comment by: Blob on 1st June 2015 at 13:42

Blobby has 2 B's and Tamron has no E and yes it has everything to do with me, i am free to comment on here, as are you, the difference being, i put my brain into gear first. Get back to Leccying, i hope you were better at that than you are at spelling.

Comment by: Garry on 1st June 2015 at 15:25

Yes I stand being corrected, two B's and no E's. Yip Has you say, I'm the best/was spark around. Now I'm retired.

Comment by: Blob on 1st June 2015 at 19:18
