Titled The Early Bird, a mother robin feeds its baby a fresh worm. 

The image culminated a week of time behind the camera, from eggs to just before fledge, when something raided the nest. 

The adults had gotten used to me, inside, quietly slipping behind the camera and doing my best to be invisible, while the nest was just outside the window of my studio. The four babies would all raise their heads when I opened the window.
