Great shot! The teal box in the left corner really complements the orange well! I'd pop those colors, brighten up the background, and then frame this one

I was going to post how you labeled the photo wrong as that is indeed not a robin, but I decided to google to make sure first before accusing. It is indeed a European Robin. Not to be mistaken for the North American Robin lol. Great photo btw

Lástima la cola y las patitas cortadas, por lo demás...gran foto. Para resaltar, la luz, color, dtalle de ls plumas. Y una mirada muy tierna. Felicitaciones.

Un cordial saludo

The reason the feet and tail are cut is I was very very close . It's a very good lens
I purchased it boxed for £195 a couple of months ago in some ways I think it's better than the Sigma 150-500. Regards

Here is the same Robin this time taken with the Sigma 150-500HSM on my Pentax K10D.

Very nice feather detail on the first one. Ditto comment about the feet and tail, but still very much a keeper.

Not quiet the same sharpness on 150-500 image. Wonder if this is focus, DOF, movement or shake. Presume lens can do a lot better than that.

I have the 170-500, and got a luck shot of a swallow up close.
