I thought we were done with winter and so did the robins, I'm sure, but this morning we woke up to about eight inches of fresh wet snow. The robins had to make do with rose hips for their dinner tonight..

A special Thank You to Andrea Peterson for the nomination.. very much appreciated, Andrea!

    This is one of the most beautiful pictures I have seen of robins...I love the rainbow arc around them and to get two of them together so sharply is fantastic of them eating rose hips...

    Thank you for your comment, Andrea. It was actually a through the deck rail capture and I got lucky with the manual focus. I added the rainbow to take some of the glare from the snow away, it was so bright on the eyes.. And thank you so very much for the nomination, it is very much appreciated!

    An unusually good photo of your Robbins. True, there is not much for them to eat this early in the spring.

    Wonderful photo of the Robins and the addition of the rainbow is fantastic. I bet the Robins wondered why so much snow : )
