Plas Newydd............................................. and a lovely encounter with a Robin


 A Robin followed us around while we were admiring the Italianate Terrace garden at Plas Newydd. 

I only had my travel lens on the camera but it did let me get quite close.

I couldn't believe my luck when it flew up and grabbed a berry from a yew tree...
 ...then it landed back on the box hedge right next to me.
I just managed to get this one image in focus... before the berry disappeared a split second later.

Drew, I think robins are attracted to you and know you are safe to be near. Lovely shots of robin garden and that little house in the background.
