    Here is a Robin I was fortunate at getting some nice images of at Sandy Creek CP. in SA.


    400d - 150-500 siggy, @f6.3, 1/320, taken at 500mm.
    Was a bit dark, mainly due at the time of lack of knowledge..

    Default Pink Robin (Petroica rodinogaster)

    'Hello Robins'... I'd wait a long time for this guy to visit me here in Townsville! This taken on a family holiday in Tassie last December at Lilydale Falls. I'd walked to the falls leaving the girls (wife and 15 and 23 year old daughters) in the car saying " I won't be long, maybe 5 minutes" (luckily they know better). I got to the top of the stairs that lead down to the base of the falls and decided not to go down as I could see the falls from the top,(even though it was only another 30m or so), then thought better of it and decided to go down to the first landing, whilst on the first landing I saw a flash of pink...and was at the bottom very very quickly. I spent the next 20 or so minutes watching a pair of Pink Robins catching insects and disappearing,presumably to feed chicks. On the way out I saw and photographed a robin chick about 50m from where the pair were, not sure it is a pink but the chances are it could be.

    7D, 100-400 @ 400, manual, 1/250, f5.6, iso400, full flash.

    This is one robin that I find very difficult to approach. I managed this photo as it came down near a waterhole I was photographing at one morning. Horrible light conditions, but I'm happy with this until I next get a close encounter!
