A rather scruffy robin (molting before migration?) feeding on our mountain ash tree. It's been so dry I imagine that worms are hard to get. K1 + 600mm EDIF Nikon

Just a young robin. They can raise two broods a year. Ours have fled the area after the drought so hardened the soil that they could not dig for bugs. Left for greener pastures I guess. When robins migrate they switch from a diet of insects and worms to fruit. The sugar in the fruit gives hem the energy they need during migration.

Of course some of our robins overwinter, arriving unpredictably on both the mountain ash and crab apple to take whatever is left. M and I were surprised to see flocks of robins on Cape Cod on a bundle-up-well cold day in February. There they seemed to be feeding primarily on bayberry.

Some of the glass displayed here looks delicious I've ordered the plastic fantastic 50 1.8 to take with me on a trip, cant afford getting a more expensive lens for now since I just got the K-1. Hope that little plastic lens is as good as people say

The blue center florets almost looks metallic, amazing that mother nature. Very nice capture.

^^^ That's a great photo. I don't know whether you realise it, but K-1 auto-focus on bicycle riders is a bit of a thorny subject around here
