In early May I found this American Robin perched near Modoc Creek, Idaho and I liked the simplicity of of the background and the robin’s pose. American Robins are a common, almost ignored species that I enjoy photographing in wild locations well away from the hum of the city.

Life is good. Happy Saturday!

    I was going to ask of you see Robins, but you answered before I asked! This is a great shot of a bird i’ve raised several of. One, Luigi, was very fond of W.W. high protein enriched spaghetti,fed as a “treat” in addition to regular feedings of canned dog food, mashed egg yolk, turtle drops and wheat germ and water….like picture of bird and the perch…..

    I am constantly amazed at the lack of imagination in bird names. A robin is a very different bird depending on where they live. As are magpies.
    Yay for less mozzies.

    Utahbooklover, I have noticed the lack of mosquitoes lately and I am reveling in it! I hope the heat made them explode. But I am seeing tons of dragonflies, damselflies and swallows who love those nasty bugs so maybe that is why I am not seeing them. says it is 100°F as I type this and feel cool, inside. I’d hate to be outside right now though.

    “Less is more” I agree. Have you noticed the lack of mosquitos lately? My guess is the heat is too much for them. Maybe all the dragonflies are a factor. Another posibility is the abatement program. Whatever the reason I’ll take the heat over the mosquitos, although staying cool is a challenge too.
