_MG_6913 Can Spring Be Far?

I was very surprised to find this robin up so high, (maybe 30 feet off the ground), but he must have been very thirsty. In the 10 years that we've lived here I've never seen a robin on my deck. It wasn't the best time of day to shoot because of the high sun, but the water in the tray reflected some nice light onto the bird's belly.

This turned out beautifully because of the reflected light...great background.

Oh that is really nice and the additional lighting on the stomach is a nice hi-light!
