    Or for the Portrait shaped card?
    And within a couple of minutes this one thought it would get in the act

    I Don't know why they get all the glory when I have more than just a bit of red to offer!​
    Getting easier this morning to get them posing now the leaves are going.

    A very enjoyable series, as always! The robins are so sweet looking (and so different than they look over in North America). Both sure were willing subjects, turning to face the camera and pose for their portraits. My faves are the third (with the quizzical tilt to its head) and fifth (the steely gaze) shots.

    European Robins are a very popular motif for winter or Christmas cards and I find them so fitting, what with the colour they offer in what is normally only grey or white landscapes. Very nice photos here! Also of that ... erm ... other bird. Oops... my ignorance...

    The other bird is a goldfinch - I am fortunate in having a flock of them that are perhaps the most common visitors during the day, staying to feed rather than a quick grab and retreat to a perch in the trees to finish their lunch as do the blue and great tits. Chaffinch and greenfinch are also frequent visitors.
