Robin and her offspring in their nest in our lilac tree. Such a beautiful site to see and I had to show you!
I was sitting at my kitchen table on May 18th and happened to look up and see this beautiful robin sitting outside on the lawn chairs. Fortunately, I had time to grab my digital camera, which was right on the table, and get this picture right before he flew away. He was about 10 feet away. I shot the picture through the glass, using my zoom lens. The robin looks like he was posing for me!
I love my digital camera; it's a Kodak EasyShare Z915. I am finally able to capture certain photos that my film cameras never could. Although I must say, there is nothing "easy" about the EasyShare software. I found that I can just take the chip out of the camera, and put it in my netbook. Then I copy the photos with the Windows picture software.
A robin built a nest in a little tree right outside my window. There was a total of three hatchlings, but this one seemed the most demanding!
This little fellow was too young to be afraid. I was parked beside the brush, when this young robin flew in and landed next to me. It didn't frighten him when I reached over to get my camera, turn it on and focus. Evidently he knew a friend when he saw one, or perhaps he knew that I was out enjoying nature, and wanted to make my trip a huge success. If so he certainly did just that.

I was just outside playing around with my camera trying to catch a bird flying, but then I saw this red breasted robin on a limb, and he looked right at me. I think it is so cool.
Robins follow me all day long. If I'm digging, they know I'll unearth worms. If I'm watering inground plants, they know the water will bring worms to the surface. With so many Robins around, one would think I had lots of opportunity to take some great shots. That's not the case. I did think this one good enough to share. Hope you like it.
This baby robin came up to our storm door and walked around in front of our cat that was inside the house for about 15 minutes. After lots of squawking from the mama bird flying around over head, the baby went and laid under a bush.
