Erithacus rubecula – European Robin. Photographed in my parent’s garden near Wexford town, in Ireland. He’s got his crest up – despite their size and cute reputation, they’re fiercly territorial, and will even try and kill each other!

I shot this from a hide I made in my car, and used a 30D and 100-400 Canon L Series Lens (USM) with my 30D. It’s not cropped.
