CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH A ROBIN


This young robin assisted me while I was gardening by encouraging me to turn more soil for his benefit. He was mostly within arm- or foot-length, and when we got tangled he flew to the edge of the garden rubbish bag. It was there that noticed the intricacy of his feathers, and so I took advantage of a bird’s eye view, so to speak. Click an image twice for a full-scale close-up.

    1. I was amazed by the intricacy of the feathers when I zoomed on computer. I’d never really thought about their feathers before. And their gardening? Maybe because they are frenchly standoffish. Or they’d much prefer to be called robin than rouge-gorge?
