This nest was photographed in strong sunlight so the pine needles woven into it and extending beyond the edges produced dramatic shadows. The actual structure of the nest is solid making me think it was built by a mother bird with care and consideration. The lace piece above the nest is from my mother’s collection of linens and laces handed down to her by her aunt – also made with care and consideration.
