Lee - these are fantastic! Amazing wildlife photography with a Pancake Lens - who said you need a SuperZoom for birding? Great compositions plus we all know the details and sharpness from that fast f/1.7. Excellent!

Brave and beautiful little fella or gal.  Wonderful shots, Lee.  It's great to hear and see from you.  I hope all is well for you and yours.

Take care,

Super set Lee, you were fortunate the little cutie was so patient and friendly.  The setting looks very similar to that in my FZ50 shots posted last week here, albeit mine were at 420mm  - http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/51131132

Really good bird photos Lee. Looks like the Cornish spring has sprung.

BillOddie Heck Lee, these are excellent!

Seriously though, these are something special - all the more so because you have made the images with your trusty 20mm f1.7 pancake.

Love the catch-lights in some of them!

Warm regards,

Paul

Very sweet set.  The 4th is my favorite.  The lighting is just right for my taste.

I hope you rewarded him for being so co operative, he was probably cold and hungry.  Jolly good shooting Lee.

Wonderful shots Lee!!  I love your little Robins.  Ours are so much bigger then yours, and let me tell you if you get anywhere near them they are gone.
