    What camera and lens set up etc ... great bird pics are sometimes a fluke or incredibly agrivating to take .

    Red Brested robin , also called the American Robin is the state bird of Connecicut , Michigan and wisconsin , although I saw alot more in ohio than michigan ... but thats not the point .

    Default Probably lucky

    This is one of the first shots with my new rebel xti. The sun was bright but not overly so and at my back. I had the kit lens on which was a EF-s 70-250 mm IS. The bird let me sneak up to about 40 feet away. I think it has a grasshopper in its mouth. I had the lens in almost all the way. Thanks for the positive comments.
