Doing as Mother Says

 My mother told me to wait for her on this railing except there's a lady staring out at me with a big camera so I got all squinty eyed and gave her the "look".
 Mom's been gone a long time, two minutes at least so I may as well have a nap.
Oh!  I hear her calling me!
 Mom says to jump down where she is because I have to take a bath.
 I'm reluctant, so she's giving me a piece of her mind.
 OK, I can do this!  And I do wiggle around and flap my wings except...
I fall in the pond backwards!  A quick recovery though.
Mother says sunbathing is good for drying off after a dunk in the pond.

  8. Love it! Such great captures with a fun story, too. You wouldn't believe how much I have been hoping for such a subject in light of Donna's new photo challenge coming up. All I see around here are crows.

  29. How sweet that the little robin posed for you in spite of giving you "the look". I enjoyed your storyline and photos, the birds must really love your pond feature.

  33. Such a sweet post. How lovely to have been able to witness that first hand. Your Robins are very different to the Robins we have here in the UK.
