Just barely caught this shot before he flew away .My husband had earlier pulled the dead tree stick (that the bird is perched on) out of the ground from the trail in our woods so that he could mow the grass without it being in the way and temporarily leaned it up against the old Grader in the yard ...The robin found the stick and perched on it for a split second to rest and I just happened to be there at the right time to get this quick shot of it.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

Thank you Herbert Andrew Dutton for the nomination on 7/20/2018! Appreciated!

    Well, timing is everthing! And luck, (and mowing the lawn!) and of course, clearly skill....A terrific capture

    Thank you all for the comments....Very appreciated...The robins are such hard working birds
    and we see them digging worms throughout the day....I was just happy to get a shot of it while
    at rest if only momentarily....

    This robin stands out so well against the darker background.. an excellent close-up! Perfect timing on this rare photo op, too.
