I had an hour to kill before a holiday dinner tonight, so I brought my camera along and wandered through a nearby park. This female spotted robin really made my day – hopped up so close to me. They make a couple of hops and then pause and listen for worms – perfect pauses to focus and shoot! I got several great shots, but I like this head-on shot – you can really see the pattern of the markings on her head. There’s a bit of hawk in there, I’d say. And I just love the detail on her spotted breast.
