  1. A wonderful set of images 🙂
    There is enough information in the first image to offer a bit of context and to tell us that the bowl/bird bath(?) is a central feature of it’s surroundings. I’m often inclined to compose out the top half of similar images but like that you haven’t been tempted to do likewise and I should sometimes remember to think how to offer a bit of context.
    The Eucalyptus is quietly engaging and I like it very much.
    The Robin is a real treat! I know moments where Robins offer the opportunity of a great shot are fleeting and this is a great photograph.
    I hope your weekend is going well.
    I think we can all breathe a little easier tonight knowing that Biden has displaced the other fella. (I’m not even going to type his name!)
    Best wishes
    Mr C 🙂

    • Much appreciated, Mr C. My preference is most often for finding the details, so I try to contrast that with the occasional contextual shot to give some idea of the “bigger picture”.

      As for the other fella, let’s hope the aftermath does not become too messy.

      Enjoy your Sunday.

  2. What a lot of territory you covered here in just four photos – from bark to birds – and yet they work together and tell a story. The Eucalyptus bark is beautiful, and Oh1 how nice it is to see a Robin again – your robin rather than ours. I saw a few in Germany last spring. 🙂

      • Yours is much more delicate, ours are very sturdy, nothing very subtle about them. I like that quizzical expression and those long legs in your photo. My impression (limited to cities) was that the European robin isn’t so easy to see and photograph. The American robin loves pulling worms out of the soil in grassy places so they’re very common yard birds. Isn’t it funny that we probably wouldn’t even be making these comparisons if some European hadn’t decided that a New World thrush reminded them of the Old World robin and gave it the same name?
