A lovely garden companion.............................................................. the Robin

I have been in the garden for most of the day weeding and preparing the soil for summer bedding plants.
The birds are quite wary when I am moving around the garden apart from one... this lovely little Robin.


As I was digging it was enjoying rich pickings... I captured these pics during a tea break.







I missed out on some wonderful Robin poses... spade in hand instead of a camera.
The hours have flown by today... where does the weekend go.

HI Andrew... What a deal for the both of you..he gets the bugs that can destroy your garden..Cute post..
Isn't it true when your working outside, the best opportunity for shots happen when your doing something else...me I always see lovely butterflies while I am mowing the grass..when I get done I can't see a one once I have the camera in hand : }

Really life is so full on isn't it... Just to be able to take time out to sniff the flowers and kick off the ole slippers. Not easy today, Why the hell is that? The robin a creature that has found benefit through contact with the human... like the dog. Love love such experiences.....

Nice to have a pal with you while you work in the garden. A cute little one at that!

Debbie said...

what a sweet companion, he does not seem wary at all.

but how do you get anything done with these cutes flying around!!

Who needs pesticides when you have loyal birds ready to help!

Carletta said...

He is such a sweet looking little bird. So different than our Robins. He's definitely prettier than ours.
You may have missed some good shots but these are lovely Andrew!

Great photos of a lovely bird - and how nice to have it stay around while you were gardening.

They do love those little grubs. Once they know you, they make great friends. I bet you had fun taking those shots, I certainly enjoyed seeing them.
