Beauty is composed of many things and never stands alone. It is so fragile it can be destroyed by a sound or a thought.  It may be infinitesimally small or encompass the universe itself.  It comes in a swift conception wherever nature has not been disturbed.

IMG_3243 The fabricator of this nest?  I’m not sure but the nest is blue-chip inside and out, ingeniously built with natural materials. My best guess?  It involves plenty of maternal labor. IMG_3242 It’s perfectly adapted to housing wee eggs and young offspring in safety and comfort. Fixed together with gossamer-like fibers, the young at the bottom of this nest will be enveloped in a mass of feathers. Mouth-gapingly awesome. IMG_3244

    1. If I can find that nest on the trail, I’ll keep an eye on it. Right now, I have a Game of Nests going on in my backyard. Bluebirds, Swallows,and Wrens, oh my. I have 3 nest boxes, shouldn’t be problem, right? Think again.


  1. Lovely captures of the nest. The feathers on top make it look so cosy and warm, so inviting. I hope the new additions will like it. It will be a big, intimate, warm party when they do arrive and I’m sure there will many great, sweet songs sung 🙂
