Brooding by missmoneypenny

I had to share this shot with you. We have a pair of robins nesting in our garage/workshop, and getting this shot was quite a challenge. The nest is on a shelf which is about 8" below the roof and the robin is snuggled deep within it. To get the shot, I had to stand on a step ladder at the other end of the garage (so I didn’t disturb her) with my head flat against the roof – sideways, lol. I couldn’t use a tripod or monopod and didn’t want to use a flash. Consequently, camera shake was a bit of a problem. She reminds me of Kilroy with just her eyes and beak showing above the nest. The robins are not perturbed by my husband working in the garage so hopefully we will soon have some chicks to photograph – if I don’t get a stiff neck trying.

Hi, my name’s Chris. I live in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire.
When I was 10 I was given a Brownie 110 for a school trip – not a single shot came out! But ….. the photography bug was born.
