    Lovely series. The male bunting looks as if it got at the make-up drawer.

    E.D. you always seem to get it right. Every one has great color, composition and exposure. How long did it take you to get that good? Just great.:thumbup:

    Eric - Love the shots man! As for the Robins'...the male robin has a much deeper; darker red chest. The first one pictured is a young male it seems. As from my studies...the small lines under his beak means it is young. Probably from this past season.

    btw: great shots of the Cardinals!

    Eric...I see you have found the Robins...can you please send them back to Maryland? Whenever they leave it gets really cold and snow...I'd like it to stop now.
