So, yesterday I promised
ReniI would upload some more of my work... So, armed and dangerous I left the house this morning to make some pictures...
I knew where I was headed. Yesterday, working in back of the garden, I had discovered two beautiful nests with eggs in them and since they tend not to run off, I would brave the twittering birds and immortalize their brood to be...
Of course, when I'm holding a camera, the road from point A (being to point of origin of the camera) to point B (the nests) is never a straight line...
Also... there was one I had to get rid off...
Eye see you, nestlings...
all owners of cats know this look...
we call it politely the 'Feed Me' look.
She wasn't leaving me, so on we went... (I knew myself well enough to know I wouldn't get to my destination soon so I still had time to bore the life out of her)
life in the weeds
small Depth of Field
And lo and behold... Me... and my cat Musa... had finally made it to the back of the garden!
And as expected, the nest was right where I left it :)
well hidden and really small. The eggs weren't much bigger then the red berries on the bush
Now for the other nest... I snuck up to it only to find I was being watched intently...
(no, not by the cat)
She didn't move as I approached but in the end I did came too close and she / he flew away. Deciding to take a snap shot of the inside of the nest I discovered something that I knew was bound to happen, but I hadn't dare hope it would have happened already...
Yesterday's eggs ...
were eggs no more!
I nearly squeeled! Nearly.
baby birds look horrible, but I can't help thinking they're adorable!!
