Feeling Sorry for Food

I was couped up for too long today so I took a break out in the backyard for some fresh air. As I pulled open the screen door I noticed this moth(?) fly from the screen to the ground. I quickly ran upstairs for the camera and my macro lens so I could get a quick shot before it disappeared.

What I didn’t realize was that this moth would be lunch to a hungry robin very soon (and it may or may not have been my fault). In getting some of my shots the moth finally had enough and flew away right in the eyeline of the robin in the tree above.

Needless to say that robin fed her chicks some moth lunch that day. Sorry little moth.
