Thanks very much indeed Paul 😊 The Robin was only about 3ft away from me in this photograph, having spent five minutes flying round it's territory and deciding I was no threat 😁 Very pleased it stood in front of the ridge of granite and the curving fern, thoughtful of the bird!

Great photo, wish I lived closer to Dartmoor. Lots of opportunity to get shots of the great British countryside and wildlife.

Thanks very much It's a magnificent area and I feel very lucky to live so close to it. The landscapes are sublime, the wildlife is rich but also good at hiding & running / flying away... working on my ninja style stealth skills.

Would be able to achieve more wildlife photos if I had a lens much greater in focal length than my 300mm equivalent, but I would have to sell the car to have the dosh to be able to buy one

Many thanks Steve 😊 I was very grateful to the Robin for it's positioning and proximity 😊 Blue tits and sparrows seem to dart about relentlessly and purposely sit a great height above me in the trees in the knowledge that I have a 300mm equivalent lens😂
