One-Year Ago (24-March-2014) — New Jersey

Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey — The migrating Robins have returned.

There were hundreds of Robins in my backyard. Although a few stay for the winter, the majority migrate and  spent the winter in Florida. Image taken with a Nikon Df camera and 600 mm f/4 VR lens (ISO 100, 600 mm, f/4, 1/320 sec).
