Merle d’Amérique / American Robin

This one is rigged!!!

I wanted a good shot of a Robin with a worm in its beak.

So i went to the grocery store and bought a can of fishing worms.

Back home, i tied a worm with a string to the patio trellis and waited...

In no time at all, a robin showed up, clic clic clic, a bit of paint shop and i had my picture!!!

Half of the bird is in the shade but i'm still happy with my photo!


Below is the original shot:
