Like many things in life, it's pretty hard to ... nail a favourite. Your favourite colour, favourite flower, favourite bird?
The Eastern Yellow Robin is indeed a charmer; I guess it's that little dash of sunshine in the shadows that does it for me.
I could've cloned out the broken stick, but hey - that's how it was, nature isn't always perfect. And the camera angle can't always be spot-on with just precious moments to capture the moment, agree? Do you discard these images every time? I liked that E.Y.Robin had it's tail fanned out some and a sparkle in the eye too. If I'd have managed a second hit right there without the broken twig, I'd have discarded this one, but since I didn't .....it's a keeper (record-shot) to share.
