This is a wonderful capture of the festive robin. I love the POV and the wintery scene. I also love his plump shape. It is sharp, detailed and well exposed. Lovely Christmas note as well.

What a cute, cold, puffed up Robin. I get cold looking at him surrounded by all the frost. He has a grumpy expression on his face and I don't blame him. Great choice for you Christmas photo. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

I am also pretty much out of the circuit, but thought just as you did to to make a brief appearance during the New Year.
I enjoyed looking at your little fluffed robin between the branches as much as I enjoyed reading the 'legend of robin redbreast'. For those like me from a different faith and from another part of the world, this is a really beautiful story...so warm and heartening ..i am sure many of you grew up listening to it...
I like the tight parallel branch composition too with the snow around and in the BG and the colours of the robin brightening up the scene.Fine contrasts and sharpness.Thanks so much for sharing
Wish you and family a peaceful and healthy New Year
P.S: I sure hope Santa heard your wish!

Extraordinary picture of a wonderful bird at so fine scenery. Quality of the image is simply outstanding. All is brilliant, however, I am impressed most of all with the terrific exposure of the image. In a word, fantastic work and so suitable for the date. Bravo.
