Pretty sure I found myself already! But am still wondering about and admiring almost everything around me :):

I believe she is hoping for a little warm sun, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Perhaps so - she could be waiting a long time...

Great picture and you did well, I don't know about English Robins, the Dutch Robins always fly away when you try to capture them...
Great DOF.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Astrid! These are quite bold. One kept following Frank around - if he'd had anything to feed it, I'm sure it would have eaten out of his hand!
One of my favourite litlle birds Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are such pretty little things!
Jolie prise de ce mignon rouge-gorge
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Martine!
TEXTBOOK, Elizabeth...and with a lovely background bokeh!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Ginnie - I must confess it was mostly luck!

It thinks you might be carrying food
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No doubt!!! He flew away as soon as he realized I wasn't!

Oh, such a sweet Piepmatz!

English robin? So you heard it speak to Frank. Sweet, sweet - it said. Because you are sweet on Frank, you just knew it spoke English grin Jokes apart. This is a great shot of this beauty. When in Ireland, I tried many times and got only one good shot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Awe... Sweet sweet!!! smile
Thank you very much, Louis - I was just very lucky!
This bird is posing well Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He did... for a moment...
The archetypal Robin Redbreast beautifully taken.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are very very different birds from our American Robins! Thank you!
wow, great.... these are hard shots to get.

(I am a NZL Robin.. ha ha)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Rob! You are the master!!
And I'm an American Robin! smile
to my untutored eye it looks like an American robing... smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No, silly - American Robins are HUGE! smile

Voted our favourite British bird in 2015, despite its sweet look it can be very aggressive when defending its territory.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I've heard that about them Anne!

So tame yet quite vicious birds. Don't be filed by their handsome good looks; they just want to mug you for your food wink
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I have heard that - but I've not been mugged yet!
Lovely against that back drop
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Martin!
great capture
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much Massimo!
I have never managed to get a decent pic of a Robin so i am jealous!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I was purely lucky!
does is speak English Elizabeth or is it just that they are much smaller that the Robins that are in America...
it is a wonderful capture... with your camera that isgrin

....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, it had a distinct English accent! smile
Yes - quite a different bird altogether from the American Robins!
Thank you, Peter!!
