Mary,
A beautiful picture of this American Robin in the process of laying an egg in her nest created from grasses woven together. Beautiful composition framing and lighting taken with superb camera techniques and sharp focus.

Oh wow, what a beautiful picture! I like the center composition and the clarity of it, and the angle worked out really well. Glad you didn't injure yourself getting the shot. Haha. Great photo.

What incredible timing to witness this mother Robin as she lays an egg, I can see the egg too! This is so special and I would take this as a symbol of good luck ! I can see her feathers are all ruffled up to protect her egg! I'm so glad that you were able to get this shot and very glad you did not get hurt in the process! Thank you so much for sharing this special image with us!

    Thank you so much for the excellent review. I truly appreciate it. I was doing one shot after another. I didn't know what I got till I uploaded it to my computer. I just wish her head were in better focus. I guess you can't have it all. I literally had my feet in the sink. What we won't do for a good photo!

A nice shot . If they have a large clutch of eggs they often ruffle their feathers in order to keep them all warm. A nice perspective and a fine shot.

A very sweet shot. I had numerous birds in my yard last year. More than usual. I was finding nests in some odd places...unsafe places to be bringing her babies into the world. I have put a few more bird houses outside in higher areas for any expectant mamas. This is a really nice close up shot. She found some hardy material in the making of this nest. So glad so one fell out of a nest or off a chair.

Oh what a beautiful capture of nature here. I see the egg and am amazed that you were able to get a shot at that exact moment. It's pretty terrific and seen with fine detail and an impressive closeup. Very nicely done,
Best wishes in the contest.

Quite a touching nature moment presented here! Your full and traditional composition allows us good view of a crucial moment. Exposure and sharpness are OK. Nicely done!

Oh what a nice scene here Mary. One can just make out the egg which will carry on the species as it has since the beginning.

This is such a tender scene. Even though the focus is not pin point sharp, it does not take away from the wonder of nature.

This is a wonderful shot of the bird in her nest! You have timed it well. The light and shadows, colours and the composition have worked out well. Good effort!
