Trying to figure out which is better this one or the one with the Robin & the worm posted May 5th.
This one is great too!

The composition is so much more strong here. I like this one best.

I agree with Michelle about the composition being much better on this one... but, boy, do I like that bird fighting the worm! :)

Another cute capture, Kathy.

Well this one is nice too, and the frontal shot you can at least see his face.

I like this one better but am surprised at the ISO setting.

What a beautiful bird

I like this one better, the composition is good, very clear shot

Lovely catch!

This is definitely the stronger composition, but the other one is fun. From your exif you have taken this at quite a high ISO. There's no grain apparent, so that says good things about the camera

A lovely capture and composition, Kathy! Great work!

Great color, composition and detail in this one! I'd say mission accomplished!

really pretty; nice sharp colors; I've been taking pictures of robins, but they never turn out well.

You should try and get down to the ground when using a F stop as high as f5.6. At F5.6 you dont have the separation from the subject and background if you are not really close to the subject. To get around this if you get down really low and take the photo it will stretch the image out and the subject will jump off the page.

@agima Thank you so much for that feedback. I can see what you are talking about since this really doesn't take advantage of those settings. This is the type of feedback I really need.
