I saw this robin hopping around the neighbors yard the other day, and at first I thought nothing of it. Then I noticed him pulling worms and thought that perhaps I could get a nice picture.
On hands and knees, I followed him around for most of ten minutes trying to catch him in the act of pulling a worm. My wife, ever helpful, watched me and laughed. Then she hurried to get her phone and take pictures of me crawling around with a camera.
I was unable to catch robin in the act. He had a clear distrust of me that kept him moving nearly as much as I did. Finally, he completed a large circle, reached a nest full of eggs, sat on them and ceased to move. It was at this point that I began to wonder if he is actually a she.
I did catch him (or her) in motion for one of my shots. The rest, I am afraid, appear motionless.
