A Young Robin

A Young Robin

On Wednesdays I work onsite at a health retreat located just outside a small village called Langford Budville. When I have my break at lunchtimes, there is nothing I enjoy more than walking around their beautiful grounds with my camera. This week I was lucky enough to capture this young robin. Such beautiful birds. I really love how it’s red/orange breast really pops out in the photo.

    I adore Robins. We had a tame one once and I used to feed him dried mealworms by hand. Super shot V

    Stunning! I prefer the look of your robins to ours…smaller and cuter somehow!

    • January 17, 2016 / 10:04 pm

      I actually didn’t realise that you had Robins over there xx

    I couldn’t pass this photo without commenting. I’m always in awe of anyone who manages to catch a bird before it flies off. Great capture Vic. I do love robins ๐Ÿ™‚

      What very kind words, thank you Suzanne. I love them too ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    He’s a stunning little thing. We get some pretty birds here but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a robin that close!

  11. January 17, 2016 / 12:32 pm

    I love seeing robins, we have one that regularly visits our garden.

  12. January 17, 2016 / 12:21 pm

    Aww what a beautiful Robin! They’re so pretty aren’t they? We had a nest last year and ‘our’ robins had babies – it was so lovely x #mysundayphoto

      Thank you so much Jayne, that is lovely of you to say xx

    What a beautiful shot, there is nothing more beautiful than a Robin photo, we used to get lots of birds viking the garden until Toby moved in, they stay away now x

  14. January 17, 2016 / 9:57 am

    What a beautiful photo! The red breast always looks stunning at this time of year against the winter backdrop! We love robins! xx #MySundayPhoto x

    That’s such an amazing capture. Love robins…

  16. January 17, 2016 / 8:11 am

    Fantastic!!! Nothing says winter more than a great picture of a Robin!

  17. January 17, 2016 / 7:50 am

    Great capture. I love robins, the splash of colour is gorgeous. There is a robin in our garden everyday, just sitting on the fence, but I never manage to get a photo before it flies away.

    Gorgeous photo. You’ve captured the robin perfectly. I can never get near enough to birds to photograph them!

  19. January 17, 2016 / 7:32 am

    A lovely photo, robins are one of my favourite birds x

    Hi Victoria, we have cheeky robin that perches on our woodpile. Whenever I go out back he’s there… Unless I have my camera with me, then of course he’s not! I swear I can see the cheeky glint in the eye of your robin too. Love the way It’s puffed up against the cold too.

      I bet your robin will be there for you one day. He does have a glint – he is so beautiful x

    What a gorgeous photo, his little redbreast really does pop! If there was a dusting of snow, it could almost be a Christmas card shot

  22. January 17, 2016 / 6:09 am

    That is a lovely shot. What an accommodating robin to sit so still for you.

    • January 17, 2016 / 11:07 pm

      He really was – I followed him all the way down the lane. Thank you John ๐Ÿ™‚

    The health retreat sounds amazing. I’m glad you can enjoy the outdoors on your break. What a stunning photo. I love robins but they are so quick, I’ve never been able to photograph one in focus. #MySundayPhoto

    • January 17, 2016 / 11:08 pm

      It really is – I am very lucky. Thank you Tara x

    I agree, that splash of orange is eye catching!

  25. January 17, 2016 / 1:21 am

    To me The Robin is the epitome of Winter, and as you say it’s red/orange colour contrasting against all the greyness of winter is just stunning!
    What a lovely place to work, btw, and how lucky to have a lunchbreak that allows you to do photography; mine is a quick dash to a sandwich shop then a room full of other PCs!!

    • January 17, 2016 / 11:09 pm

      I totally agree Tracey. My work place is a portacabin so it is important to me to get out for some fresh air ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    He might be young but he is beautiful. A lovely picture, you seem to have a knack for catching wildlife at their best xx

    • January 17, 2016 / 11:10 pm

      He totally is ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much Lisa – that is an amazing compliment x

    I have a son named Robin with bright brown eyes and I love to catch sight of them in trees. Lovely shot

  28. January 17, 2016 / 12:11 am

    Oh he is beautiful, we have some hanging around the farm but i never have the right lens on at the right time, your photo makes me determined to try.

    • January 17, 2016 / 11:11 pm

      I am certain I will see one you have photographed soon Fiona x
