newborn robins

this robin built her nest so low, I couldn't resist getting the shot which was a challenge at best. I stood on the ladder, contraption in hand. My exposure was tested ahead, I relied on auto focus and shooting blind. Fred held down the branch below and moved the top branch aside. I took a few shots, most of them missing the birds all together, this one capturing them just right.

Two days later I tried the shot again but the third egg was gone, the two little birds doing fine. The robin parents and all their friends making quite a bit of noise until we moved away only seconds later.
