They like those high perches, don't they?

This is beautiful. There is a silvery quality that lends an otherwise threatening sky, a sort of peace.

I greatly enjoy the drama of your composition. All the clouds make that tiny bird a mighty one.

The Robin really is looking at the clouds, probably waiting for rain, so the worms will come out. LOL

That's a nice shot. The robin contrasts so nicely against the cloudy sky.
