Beyond reach

Today is the first day the snow has melted enough that I could go for a walk in the play bush near my home. An American robin was  on a tree branch and kept stretching its neck to try to get berries that were just beyond reach.   After numerous tries, it finally realized it was a futile effort and flew off another branch where the picking was easier.
