Robin/Camera Critters

Robin feasting on frozen apples

The robins have returned before the earth has warmed enough for worms to  wend their way to the surface.  So what's a robin to do? Feast on last autumn's apples!

To join in the fun, visit Misty Dawn at CAMERA CRITTERS 

I am also linking to Madge's Weekly Top Shot

A not so still life picture :-). Love the muted colours and the light and the composition. Have a lovely weekend!

God bless you!

Birds are so clever. Can't wait to see our first robins. Have a relaxing and wonderful week-end!

Jill said...

Such a beautiful site so wonderfully captured!

Awesome. B

Kathy said...

We had robins really early this year. No wonder our Texas bluebonnets are already blooming!

CameraCruise said...

Beautiful, one of my favorite birds!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I imagine the ground is still frozen and worms are yet to be on the menu?

Sandra said...

precious, had no idea they would eat apples. we saw a squirrel run up our tree yesterday carrying a grapefruit n his mouth

Birdman said...

Weird! We has robins here in January eating red berries off our Christmas decorations. ???????

Lowell said...

From the looks of Robin Redbreast I say it has been feasting all winter! The ones we see here are skinny!

Carletta said...

Even with the snow that little robin says it's spring!

Dianne said...

frozen apples! I wonder if it's their version of a treat

love the texture of your shot

You should make Christmas cards out of this one. I would!

Becky said...

Oh yes, I have seen lots of Robins, but not seen them eating anything. We didn't have a good year for apples last Fall.

Malyss said...

I'm always worrying for little birds in winter.. At least, this one has something to eat!

RedPat said...

I heard a robin this morning!

Joyful said...

What a sweet photo. I've always been fascinated by robins.

Madge Bloom said...

I love this shot... such wonderfully crisp focus. I'm always thrilled to see the Robins return in the late winter every year. Will you consider entering it in my 'Weekly Top Shot' meme? We're on Week #21 and I'd love to see you share with me and my readers! Here's this weeks' link: http://www.theviewfromrighthere.com/blog/?p=6603

We have robins that overwinter but only show their big red breasts in January for a day or so then we usually don't see them again until March. This year, they showed up on schedule and never went back into hiding.

Viola said...

Sweet Robin!! =) And i got hungry.. and had to eat.. and meanwhile I forgot the pc.. and Robin..
In that way, both Robin and I got hungry..! ;D

Ellie said...

Love the feeling of this picture - looks pretty cold though. Aren't Robins cute though.

Halcyon said...

Spring can't be far! :D

Stephanie said...

Nicely captured, good to see the apples are still edible for the robins. Ours are rotting on the lawn, all brown.

SandyCarlson said...

This is exquisite!

Randy said...

What a beautiful photograph. You captured him perfectly.

Small City Scenes said...

Robin's here too. Tons of Juncos too but of course they stay all winter. MB

chubskulit said...

Captured beautifully!

My Critter Post, have a blessed weekend.

Indrani said...

Great capture.

jewaicious said...

What a sweet thing, and you captured the expressiveness so wonderfully.

It's a bit sad...the robins must be so very hungry.

llandudnopictures said...

This is a plump little fellow, he obviously knows where to find food throughout the winter!

Sivinden said...

That's a nice bird shot! Love the colors on bird and fruit.

Madge Bloom said...

As I said before I just loved this shot... I'm so glad you decided to join us and share at 'Weekly Top Shot.' :-) I hope you'll come share again next week...

Crafty Green Poet said...

what a pretty photo, such lovely colours!

Janie said...

Lovely composition, EG, with the red robin breast and red apples.
The robins are feasting on the leftovers from our apple tree, too. Daisy and the horses also like them. They don't seem to care that they're out of season!
