Common Robin Often Overlooked


posted on 25th of october, 2008


The American Robin (Turdus migratorius) is so common to most of North America that it is often overlooked as the subject for photographers. Their natural tendency to not be easily startled or distracted by nearby human activity makes them excellent subjects for highly detailed close-up photography. On two different occasions, I took these sharp, clear, vivid photos right in my own front yard, less than 25 feet from my house, and less than 10 feet away from the robin. In the photo of the robin on the tree stump, the paved asphalt street made an excellent neutral backdrop for the photo.
