Reader Contribution by Brenna Long

Beak open wide, this little bird can’t wait until mom comes back with some tasty food. Still surrounded by a few blue eggs, this little robin might have more brothers and sisters on the way. And how fun for this photographer! This nest is perched in a tree in their garden. This let them watch the little bird burst from his shell and grow.

Little robins always signal spring time to me. At my house, I remember being lifted up by my dad to take a peek at the little robins huddled in their nest. The tree sat right outside our dining room, so you could stand at the window all day and watch the mother robin fly about building the nest and feeding her babies.

Thank you CU photographer ritalee for submitting your photo this week. Check out ritalee’s My Gallery for more wildlife photos, such as a bear!

Keep submitting your photos every week to the CU photo-sharing site. And if you don’t have a CU Photo-Sharing account, sign up! Next week your photo could be the Photo of the Week! Each week the Photo of the Week is taken from that week’s submissions. You have to submit every week for a chance to be the Photo of the Week!

Remember to fill out the captions and give your gallery a name all its own. The more we know about an image, the more we can take from it. I really enjoy knowing all the details about photos. I am in a photography class right now, and one way to use photography is to tell a story. And the best way to tell a story is to add a little caption.
