Photo of the Week 7/4/10

Robin on our Porch Potting Bench
 Friday, July 1st

Please check out today's post at The Days of Wine & Roses; it's the next poem in the A Few More Fold-Out Postcard Sonnets series.


  1. is there a worm nestled in there? great capture!!

  2. Hi John.I hope goes well?Hey! I'm Off To See Buddy Guy Play Tonight!

  3. Hi Mouse & Tony

    Mouse: I didn't notice one--thanks!

    Tony: Wow: enjoy Buddy Guy--now I'm jealous!

  4. Heh - for a moment I took him to be part of the still life (a counter-balance to the toucan?). Good of him to pose like that.

  5. That's beautiful - he does seem right at home, posing (reminds me of when I was recently taking photos of sea gulls - sometimes they seemed to stand just so, one eye on you, permitting you to take a photo of them).

  6. Reminds me of those cartoons where Daffy Duck (or whoever), tries to hide out by pretending to be something on a shelf or mantlepiece.

  7. Hi Sandra, HKatz & Jacqueline:

    Sandra: Exactly--I loved the pairing of the toucan & the robin!

    HKatz: That particular robin has been spending a fair amount of time on the porch. I think he gets spilled bird seed off the potting bench, because I fill the feeders there.

    Jacqueline: That's perfect! Thanks.

  8. I wonder what the toucan thought about the visit? What a wonderful photo to have caught. It's great when you have a camera to hand for those moments. Typically, robins don't hang around long enough for me to catch them.


  9. Hi Kat: Having a glass front door sure helps getting this kind of shot!

  10. Hi Sandra & HKatz

    Sandra: It was good of him!

    HKatz: He is a bold fellow. Lately he's been getting into the cat food!
