I also discovered that the robins were a bit smaller than I might have liked, or maybe my telephoto lens was not quite telephoto enough...
But with some adjustments and cropping in photoshop, I got a couple of neat photos.
The robins were also drinking and bathing in the pond right in front of the branch, so I did a bit of moving my camera back and forth.
I loved the big belly on this guy. There was an earlier version of this post where I commented on something being off about the placement of this bird's beak - ummm - I had mistaken part of the swamp for his beak. Then during the creation of the photoshop layer, I masked the swamp rather than the beak. Error corrected and now the actual beak has a bit of yellow like it should.
Below is the full branch where I was hoping a big bird would land right in the middle. In this shot you can see the bird way off to the right.
