Robin in Flight

The quality of this photograph is not especially high, and the gray skies in which I snapped my shutter dulled the colors, but I enjoyed finding the results of my digital snappery. The robin's wings happened to be close to its body when the image became digitized, and the effect is something live an avian missile in flight.

The bird looks like a flying superhero, or perhaps like a German V-2 rocket from the Second World War screeching toward London. The bird also seems to have a rather fierce determination in its rapid flight away from my dog and me as we wandered about an empty field in Rossford yesterday.
