“Brave, Brave Sir Robins (and perhaps a lady or two)” was made during a record winter for Boise when we had snow on the ground for two months and frequent heavy squalls. When it started to snow this time, I went looking for subjects and came upon a flock of nearly 100 robins gorging themselves on the fruit of this tree. I’d photographed the behavior before in the neighbor’s tree, but that setting had challenges. In this case, the snow was falling so heavily that it wouldn’t have mattered where I was. The blizzard conditions isolated the tree in a sea of white. As a result, I had the opportunity to consider the best way to arrange the elements to highlight the shape of the tree, and the robins simply became colorful accents. I stood under my umbrella with my camera while the snow piled up on and around me and eventually the flock moved on. I would have been happy just to witness the excitement, but to record images that captured the feeling of being “out in it” was a bonus.
