|I watched this Kildeer for quite some time as it foraged along the shoreline. I had it in my viewfinder when it suddenly starting pulling out a worm from the soil. |
The Killdeer kept pulling and pulling and the worm kept holding on. The Killdeer almost lost its footing as the worm finally let loose, springing out of the hole like a rubber band.
I found the whole episode quite amusing, yet had to give the worm some credit for the battle it put up.

A quite tenacious Kildeer I must say. Literally, looks like tugging a rubber band out from the soil. Nice details of the dorsal feathers and the catch light on the eye is so good to have..brings life into the picture.
Very nicely done.
The worm is stretched like a rubber band, Ron. Hilarious!
This is an extremely dramatic moment you have captured so well.
The bird too seems to be straining to get the worm out.
Wonderful sharp image with perfect capture of its eye.

You have captured well the action of the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Kildeer. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.
