[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is probably one of my favorites photos of our visiting Robin. Mainly because I was able to see that he actually has dark brown eyes rather than just black. I was lucky that he was sitting around long enough for me to sort out the focus. I use manual focus rather than automatic. It works better for me. The lens used also has a micro setting which allows you to focus from a shorter distance. I was probably 1.5 - 2 meters away from him when this shot was taken. Shutter speed 1/200 Focal Length 238mm

Hi Zandra,
another great shot and interesting note on how you focus, it obviously works very well. I trust the camera more than my eyes. I have been experimenting using live view which allows you to zoom x 10 and then use manual focus.
It works well when on a tripod. I must look out for some birds to try out the different methods.

Très belle photographie.
Précise, cadrage parfait et fond efficace.
Bravo, ce petit oiseau est superbe à voir !
