Soon after a gentle rain shower......
Robin wisely used her brain power
Where the ground was good to dig,
To find her food.. an earthworm big
That she proudly swallowed whole.....
Patient birds do reach their goal!

I followed the robin around the wet grass while she was going through the work of hopping from one place to another as she listened for worm activity but when she was successful it happened so quickly that the worm didn't have a chance...and I am surprised too that I actually got this shot before she swallowed it whole.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
