Adds some color to an otherwise snowy, gray day.

Nice shot. But false advertising on two points
The Robin isn't eating, just sitting there.
And the"Robin Eating Berries" are something very different than "Robin, Eating Berries".

Please excuse me, I am in a mood and reverting to nit picking and childish comments. But that comma makes a big difference in how it reads.

Really? No wonder people have issues posting on this forum.

Pretty Robin, regardless of what some others may say...

No problem. Little sensitive on some of the comments I see on the forum.

Re the pic. I was more surprised it came out better than I expected. As I was coming back from taking pictures of my grandchildren sledding, I saw the robin hopping around the tree. I was expecting it for fly off but it kept hoping branch to branch and didn't seem to bothered by me. I was wondering why it didn't fly away and then I saw it eating some berries. I took a few shots and couldn't get one I liked because of branches getting in the way. Anyway, it was some nice color in the dead of winter and a reminder that life goes on and that spring will eventually come.

Yes, our feathered friends insist on being in trees and such and Mother Nature insists on those having branches and leaves to get in our way.

When I first saw your title I did expect to see a Robin eating berries. That the Robin was between berries is just fine. And it is a very nice picture.
But, then my school teacher subroutine in my brain kicked in and said "No comma, it is a bunch of giant carnivorous berries eating a Robin."
To the punctuation police that comma makes a world of difference.

This one's quite pretty and would look good on the wall.

Read it long ago while I was still teaching. May even be around somewhere, but I have donated about 75 file boxes of books to two local libraries over the years. Wife insisted on it and now since about 2012 I buy 99%+ of my reading material in electronic version.
