I always am excited to see my first robin of the year. To me it means that Spring is here. The robins have returned! And although I have seen several by this time, try as I might I couldn't get a photo of one. Until yesterday, that is.
Joe and I were at church sitting on the front steps waiting for a repairman to show up. Suddenly this robin comes up to us, looks at us and then flies into the dogwood tree in the church yard. I grabbed my camera out of my purse and was able to get some shots of him.
After awhile he flew onto the sidewalk and into a neighbor's yard and back onto the sidewalk. I kept snapping away. It was great!
Now it's officially Spring.
