Robin’s Nest

Nest in my backyard




My husband was mowing last weekend and he saw this nest in the nook of one of our large maple trees in the backyard.  Curiosity drove him to put an extension mirror up there to see if there were any inhabitants inside the nest.  To our delight there were unhatched robin’s eggs.  So….the idea formed to take pictures of the eggs prior to hatching and we are hoping to get some of the babies after they have hatched as well.

It is always surprising to me when I see a glimpse into the life of a bird!  I don’t know why it surprises me so much, but it still holds a sort of awe that is inspiring to me.  Birds aren’t all that mysterious, in that we see them flying all the time, but their everyday life cycle is not something we get to see.   I think I am truly blessed to be able to see it and get a picture of it to hold forever… that particular moment in time, suspended.   I think it is just one of the beautiful WOW moments I can call upon to give me joy.   I hope you all enjoy the moment as I have.

Art has always been a part of my life, ever since I can remember I have been creating art. I would make gifts to share with others at Christmas and then I found drawing, or maybe God introduced me to that particular art form, but it was an all consuming thing during my youth. After I had kids, it seemed that art didn't fit into my world in the same way. But the desire was always there and it eventually took over my life again...becoming a need more than a desire. So, photography enters my life. Artists have a unique way of seeing the world, it is their vision that creates the art not the medium they choose to express it in. No two artists will see the same thing in the exact same way. It is the most beautiful form of flattery to have someone see your art and tell you it is beautiful to them. It connects you on such an intimate level. I want to share my creative vision with everyone that wants to look upon it with appreciation.
