American robin in a watercolor
Spring has returned the robins the fields and forests around Bragg Creek. I found this one stirring up the leaves below these trees. She darted between the trunks and then flew up into the branches. The diffused background from a narrow depth of field reminded me of a watercolor painting. The monochromatic palette in the bark and dull yellow grass both warmed a little with the morning sun. Her orange belly was a welcome splash of bright color.
It’s so confusing to me that the American robin is such a totally different bird than the European robin. Live them both though!

I so rarely get to see a robin, and this year they seem not to have included us in their migration path. That makes your photo all the more delightful; they’re a favorite bird, and it’s always good to see them.

Quite painterly and very beautiful, Christopher. A welcome sign of spring.
