American Robins (Two Photographs)

Most birds hide in trees, a few like the robin like to be visible to potential mates while making their calls. This wish to be visible does nothing for the photographer if the background is not pleasing. Secondly it’s nice to get a catch-light in the eyes (of course we could put one there with Photoshop but that would be tomfoolery). You can see in these two photographs that a few millimeters makes all the difference for a catch-light. I think that for most bird photographers shooting a bird clearly standing out and doing something interesting, even if it’s only singing, is much better than nothing.
