catches the worm.

A Snowy-crested Robin Chat having breakfast. Taken while on safari in Chester Zoo last week.
I know I'll get deducted 10 points for cropping the robin's tail but, hey ho, you will be a bit closer to the dinner table. All life's a balance.

Many thanks for taking the time, voting and commenting on Early Morn. As always, very much appreciated.

Excellent capture. Now I would cheat and clone out the end of the tail so that it didn't look like I had cropped it!
