Bye bye Fred!

We all have a favourite model, Fred was mine.I am going to miss him terribly. All the more so because I am responsible for his demise. It took only a couple of weeks to train him to pose wherever we put a worm or two. In fact he was often posingbefore I got the worms out of their box.Soon he progressed to hand feeding:Before we knew it he was coming into the kitchen for a chat with his tea-time treat. Having 3 cats we strongly discouraged this behaviour by keeping the garden door... continue reading

The Robin Chronicles...

So I just blogged about being able to timeline the whole robin hatching thing. And here's my forehead slapping moment: I forgot my camera today. Today, of all days.

Happy New Year from a very snowy Inverness, Scotland.

Isn't it ironic that global warming is so much in the news and we are experiencing an unprecedented cold spell. So I attach an image of an old boat house surrounded by frozen water and forest to give... continue reading

Common Robin Often Overlooked

The American Robin (Turdus migratorius) is so common to most of North America that it is often overlooked as the subject for photographers.Their natural tendency to not be easily startled or distracted by nearby human activity makes them excellent subjects for highly detailed close-up photography.On two different occasions, I took these sharp, clear, vivid photos right in my own front yard, less than 25 feet from my house, and less than 10 feet away from the robin.In the photo of the robin on... continue reading
