Dynamic Duo in Pink

These two photos seemed, to me, to belong together. Brighter and more showy than yesterday’s pinks with a very strong “Look at Me” factor.  They’re not keen to share the stage with others but promised they’d behave – as long as there’s just the two of them! Flower and bird both show a wonderful pink gradient from bright to light.

This robin was photographed in Tasmania, Australia. It was a jaw-dropping moment the first time I came across a photo of this bird!  In New Zealand we have a cute robin but it lacks the stunning colour.

Unsurprisingly, its common name is Pink Robin, scientific name is Petroica rodinogaster. The Aussies have another similar robin named the Rose Robin!

        1. Yes I would love the colour! Travelling isn’t part of our plans any time soon but if it were to happen I think I’d come to Australia as you have loads of colour there and so many things I’d like to see and places to go !!

            1. Right! That won’t change the colour of all your wonderful varied birdlife though, so long as they survive of course! And there’s a lighting installation at Ayers Rock that I would LOVE to see, Lignum Draco photo-ed it and published on WP and when I was disappointed it would be finished by now he told me its been extended for quite some time, a year I think. I have this dream of coming to see it for myself!


  1. Benjamin says : “Gem, I wish you had some pink Robins too!” That is amazing, as he is usually all about orange on birds. He said that “the flower is for you Gem”. Thank-you!!

  2. These stunning captures of perfectly pink color are breathtaking! The flower is magnificent. The Pink Robin, in all his fluffy feathered glory, will surely be loved by Benjamin. Thank-you for a marvelous Saturday morning treat!
