Puts all Heaven in a Rage.

Beautiful shot Shelley. I was expecting to see your loon soon. Are they back?
Here they came back few weeks ago but the winter came back last week and they probably suffer from that. I hope they will do ok...

Isn't that the truth! I can't even imagine such a thing. The Robins are so wonderful to listen to at 5:30 in the morning : )

I have to say that I am guilty of taking for granted the robins in my garden, but I do enjoy watching them and occasionally chasing the murderous crows away from poor Robins' nests. Wonderful photograph Shelley.

Very smartly dressed but I think I prefer our smaller 'redbreast'. FAB.

Richard said...

I'd be mad too if I saw a Robin in a cage. Great picture.

So that's what a robin looks like! I've only ever seen drawings of a robin.

The Retired One said...

I sure love seeing them back in the U.P.! And I hear them singing every morning by our lake.

Leeloo said...

Don't you just love them?? Their dawn and dusk songs warm my heart :)

When I was little I often tried to sneak up on them, they'd lean forward and run, then stop. Lean forward, run, then stop. They always saw me no matter how much I tried to sneak, lol.
