There are so many Robin pictures in this post that I decided to link itย to Robinโ€™s blog Witlessdatingafterfifty ๐Ÿ™‚ Please visit and follow!

So, I met this handsome little Robin, distracted him with a small talk and took out my camera. I kept talking and shooting, and he didnโ€™t mind much and didnโ€™t fly away because he was in his mid-moult at that time. It takes energy to build new feathersโ€ฆ

Robin changed his position and turnedย back to see if I still was there.


I still was. He looked at me disapprovingly, and I quietly retired blowing him a kiss for a โ€˜thank youโ€™.
