Have you ever gone out to photograph a bird, raised your lens only to lower it again and say, "oh, its just a robin?"
Last week, I was engaged in searching for that elusive northern flicker that frequents the yard, when this robin popped up on a branch right in front of me. He gave me these two great images before he flew off again. I only caught a glimpse of the flicker.
When I saw these photos on my computer screen, I thought, "I'll never say "just a robin" again. What cute poses from a friendly backyard personality. And in TN, the American robin hangs around to keep us company all year round.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
