Just a sequence from one of the pairs of Robins on my patch
My Flickr photos
Beautiful. If I had to give the last pic a caption it would be:

In reply to monkeycheese:
You could be right there Paul, this is one of probably half a dozen pairs on my patch either courtship feeding or taking food back to the nest.
In reply to Alan.:
All that squeaking and wing flapping and she just holds it in her beak! Mrs HTR is like a mini waste disposal unit. The wax worms just disappear immediately. Did you notice if she made a 'hissing' sound as she took the food?
No I didn't hear anything like that, but will have a listen if they meet me in the morning.
Such good captures D, a pleasure to share!
