    Post Production- DPP, crop and clone out OOF wire perch in Ps CS6.

    Notes- There has been quite an influx of this species over recent times, more than usual to my thinking. Presenting perhaps more opportunities than usual, anyway I can't go past them.
    This shot taken as the bird aliighted from perch on a foraging sally. Not all that I might have hoped for but quite pleased to have managed a keeper of this bird in flight.

    They are such a beautiful robin and the wings spread in this is great, Les. Hard to get them in focus on the wing though!

    Great effort Les, not quite in focus but much better than I have been able to achieve for a small bird in flight, well done.

    'Missed it by that much!' Well worth keeping (and posting), Les. An incredibly difficult bird to catch in flight.

    Went out to Three Rivers station country 'tuther' weekend 500 ks inland; at every waypoint this or the lady of the species would come in to sticky beak. Prolific this year
    Through the lens. Seeing the natural world with greater perception.
