Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture at my local country park.
Time
I think it was late afternoon.
Lighting
The robin was backlit. I had just moved down the path when he or she hopped onto the post.
Equipment
I think it was my Sigma 120-300 f2.8 os on my 600d propped on the nearest fench post
Inspiration
I had be up a few times before to the park with my family and we noticed this Robin regularly popping out of the bush to various posts along the path. I figured it must live close so planned to come back a few days later.
Editing
The subject was backlit and I didn't use any fill flash so had to use Lightroom to recover the shadows, a bit of clarity to pull out some detail and finally used the sharping brush
In my camera bag
My bag at the time had the Canon 600d, 50mm f1.8, 55-250mm, Sigma 17-50mm f2.8, Sigma 120-300 f2.8 OS. Gloxy Flash. I've since upgraded to the 6d & 7d mkii and various other flash gear.
Feedback
Patience... is key with these small birds. You don't need the biggest lens to capture these birds if your willing to wait. You could persuade them with some seed but not everyone approves in baiting wild animals.
