Artist's Description

Robbie in my garden

Camera : Canon EOS 550D
Processed and layered in PS S4
Location : In my garden – Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa.
My favourite little garden friend, Robbie, a Cape Robin-chat – Cossypha caffra (Afrikaans: Jan Frederik) who spends more time in my house than in the garden. Since he moved into my garden about 3 years ago, he has qcquired a wife (who also follows him into the house at odd intervals), they have had three broods and this summer he has spent time following me around the garden, making for some great photographic moments.

His favourite snack is some minced meat which I put out on my kitchen table for him and his favourite past-time is attacking his image in my staiinless steel dustbin, which he never seems to tire of!

The Cape Robin is a mainly resident breeder in southern and eastern Africa from Kenya south to Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. It is a common species at forest edges and in scrub, fynbos, karoo, plantations, gardens and parks.
