My youngest son is a very funny guy. On our travels out east this week, we went to visit my wife's aunts and uncles in Northern Virginia. They had a little pond on their property where the kids did some fishing with homemade bamboo poles. They caught little sunfish and had a great time. My son bonded with this little worm (a nightcrawler) that he refused to use for bait. Actually, he cut off a piece of it and used it for bait and thought it was really cool that the worm stayed alive after that. Last week when we were down in Sarasota, we went fishing with Gramps on his boat and he used live shrimp in a livewell. My little guy would have absolutely nothing to do with them and wouldn't go within five feet of the shrimp on the boat. He said that they "freaked him out." Must have been all the crawly legs. Anyway, I was quite impressed that he liked to hang out with this worm... My kids are such city kids that they don't do stuff like this very often. I promised that I would get him a worm as a pet when we got home. I suppose that won't be too bad... as long as he promises to keep the scissors away from it...

One of the best worm shots I‘ve seen in a while! Your approach here really captures the fun of the moment.

Love the DOF. Well done on this shot. Shows kids being kids!

Nobody loves me, everybody hates me, I guess that I'll just eat worms!
Cool shot of one of a boys rites of passage.

Cool. We used to go 'nightcrawler picking' at night after it rained in an old city park in Louisville as they would be all over the ground. Pet wise they are kinda cool in an ant farm type set up.
