Please watch in full resolution so you won't miss out on all the wonderful detail in its feathering. It was really hard to pick this photo out of a series of about 200 photos. This robin was really persistent and certainly very photogenic :)

Sehr schön getroffen! Aber wo sind die anderen 199 Fotos??? ;-)

Spectacular spectacular! May we know what lens did you use?

Thank you all!
@Paulo: I used the new Tamron 70-300 VC USD lens for this photo. I keep being impressed with the image quality for a zoom lens in this price range.
@mate-fotos: Ich war mir nicht sicher, ob sich wirklich jemand 200 ähnliche Fotos anschaut ;) Ich kann die Tage mal noch ein Paar andere hochladen.

Thank you, Quantum, for sharing the info. I'll surely look into that!
Quantumleaper December 23, 2010, 07:43 PM
Again, thanks for commenting and fav'ing!
@Paulo: No problem :) For me, it's the ideal compromise between price, image quality, zoom range, weight and features (USD, VC, IF). The new Canon 70-300L is supposed to be at least a tiny bit better, but too heavy, too bulky and much too expensive.

psssst.. no canon commercials! paulo is using the N-brand ;)
Quantumleaper December 23, 2010, 08:27 PM
Oh, I had no idea! If that's the case, it is a gift from heaven that the Tamron is also available for the N-mount ;)

WOW! That's really a great shot my friend! :-)
