My Backyard Birds: The American Robin

Birds In The Spring?

I photographed this bird in mid May as it was hanging out in our tree after a rain. Normally all of the backyard bird posts on this site come from the winter when I am a little more bored. This one came from the fact that I was inspired by another photographer. I was actually in position to make this photo because of another bird, but the robin came right into the right spot for a nice photo. I love it when things work out.

The Inspiration For This Photo

While shooting the MVC Track and Field Championships I had the pleasure of working with Jim Sullivan. Jim is a phenomenal wildlife photographer, and looking through his images inspired me to get out and make some images of my own. You can view some of his work here. It is great to work with someone that inspires you.
