I believe that is a Cardinal, not a Robin. Nice shot!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Freedom Park, Charlotte while I was walking the trails with my puppy. The bird was just enjoying the day and I enjoyed that he 'posed' for me.
Time
This was late afternoon which as professionals know, it is the best time to photograph. Not quiet golden hour but definitely great ambient light.
Lighting
Natural ambient light... the best there is!
Equipment
This was shot with my Nikon D610 using my 70-200MM 2.8. I zoomed in at 200 and had my F-stop at 3.2 with ISO at 200
Inspiration
As most of my outdoor photos... it presented itself and I grabbed the moment.
Editing
Yes, I did some post. There was a large branch on the right side that I took out and cloned the left side. I also blurred the background slightly to give it more depth.
In my camera bag
What is normally in my bag?... Nikon D750, Nikon 24-70MM 2.8, Nikon 70-200MM 2.8, Sigma 85MM 1.4 Art and a Nikon SB?910 Speed-light.
Feedback
I would recommend to always search your surroundings. Many times I go out with a shot in mind but then nature presents another vision to capture. Always be ready with camera in hand so these accidental opportunities are never missed!
