Original and evocative shot, one of the rare bird shots that have a story to tell not only to ornitologists and bird watchers.

Very witty and quickwitted shot Pim. I like the crop and the sharpness.TFS

Hi Pim,

A well composed photo. Very good dof and color. TFS.


Hallo Pim.
Superb shot. Excellent composition. Nice 'FRAME'. lol

Hello Pim. Wonderful shot, DOF enhances clarity of main subject well. Thanks for sharing.

Regards Phil.

What a perfect catch, excellent composition and I don't think he is going to ride that bike *_*
maybe a birdbike
love tones in the background, really excellent done

Hi Pim,
Nice shot of the Robin...your Robins look so much different than ours...prettier I think. Beautiful bg, he pops out very nice. It for sure is an unusuall perch, did you give him a ride? lol Nice light in the birds eye giving it life. Good shot!


O Pim, wat een fantastisch shot - ga aub niet vertellen dat je hier ook wat mee hebt gedaan. Maar zelfs dan is het nog steeds toppie.
Prettig weekend
Moet je die oogjes nou zien...

wat is ie scherp!!
en ook erg leuk dat ie op een fietsstuur zit
erg mooie foto

Good use of comparesion!I know the size of the bird now:)Sweet DOF!

The Robin... a sure sign of spring. This is a very good close up of the bird on your bike. Well done on the focus and exposure.

hello pim!

Hi Pim,

Hi Pim ,
What a good shot you realised ! Well composed . Colors and DOF are great . Thanks for sharing .

Je hebt 'm in de humor-rubriek geplaatst.... klopt wel. Mooie handgreep met praktische ribbels. Ook die andere hendels zijn handig. Jammer dat er zo'n beest op zit, anders was ie echt af..... :-)
Prachtplaat joh. Gefeliciteerd.
En nog bedankt voor je commentaar op mijn paddo's. ;-)

Hi Pim,
Talking about "chapeau"...
Great capture! Perfect sharpness and detail. The cutie looks so good on the bike handle.

Nice picture - I love the comparison between soft and cuddly nature and the hard technology. Great timing on the shot.
Thanks for sharing

fine... if it was a robin with a hood... and some [sp]arrows...

Hoi Pim,
Roodborstje tikt niet tegen het raam zie ik, eerder tegen de bel. Mooi gevat mijn vriend, hee bijzonder het natuurlijkewonder of the technisch vernuft. Fijn contrast, en overigens haarscherp. Top foto!

Amazing photo Pim.
Colour perfect picture. Excellent composition. Tfs. stev

Merhaba Pim.
Well seen, good catch my friend.
TFS and rgrds.


Hi Pim,

I wouldn't have thought that this little fellow wants to ride... :) I hope you took him a ride...
Great close up photo with nice details and DOF!

Very well done and TFS

Très joli oiseau, éclairage uniforme, bien capturé, bien réalisé, merci pour le partage, salutations et bonne journée.

Hoi Pim,

dit is echt een 'lucky shot'! en dat je op zo'n moment dan ook nog in staat bent zo'n foto te maken, heel knap. Heerlijk foto overigens :)


Petje af! Man wat een lekkere foto! Echt schitterend, dat tere beestje hier zo mooi scherp en echt van kleur
Welke lens was dit??????? Pim dit is voor mij een 200 punten shot en plak hem bij mijn fav-jes! Groet en tot Dinsdag op Schiphol :-)

Hello Pim.

intresting shot and moment captured. nice bird. tfs

geweldig scherp, ik ben er jaloers op

Hello Pim

Well what a delightful shot, lovely and sharp and the cheeky Robin perched on the bike handle. Lovely work and I can easily see why yu would choose this as your favourite

TFS regards Smurfie

Did you put it there yourself or it landed by itself?
It's great!
Not very common to see such a nice little birdie on a bike for example, so low to the ground, and easily to be captured.

No wonder it's one of your fav. shots.

Well done.

Hi Pim, quick action shot on your part, and the bird is enjoying his moment of excitement...
It seems to be a little over-sharp, as there are small funny edges around the bike and bird. Still its a lucky catch
Well done
