A Forest Robin
Most other animals, like the rabbit I saw the other day, run away so fast that I never have even the smallest chance of getting any pictures. I've gotten better at catching them over the years, but my fast camera ability has gotten a bit rusty over the last year or so.
It's kind of easy to get pictures of a big waterfall or a statue, or even a few cows, but little forest creatures are another matter. All I have to do to take pictures of scenery is to stand there pointing my camera for however long I want, and the picture comes out okay every time. It's not really going anywhere very fast.
American robins are a bit different than most other birds. They like to hop along on the ground a lot. You don't see many other kinds of birds on the forest floor. And they make so much racket hopping through the leaves that you'd swear that you were hearing bigger animals walking around in the forest.
The noise that robins make when it gets kind of dark and you're not used to the forest can be a little disturbing. You may think there are animals all around you. There are, but they're not the bigger animals you begin thinking of. They're just these friendly little robins. I really like them. I'll talk to you later.
