stick, twigs and legs

This robin flew down to see what the goose was pecking amongst the mud and twigs near South Pond. To me, his little legs seem too frail to support even his tiny body.
I agree - incredible! Lovely shot!

Karin, thank you and yes, I seem to have had better luck with finding birds and 'shooting' them lately.

Thank you! It was all the better as it was unexpected because my brain was just in goose/duck mode! And then the robin just floated down from a tree.
