i was trying to think of a place in the area i could go capture some photographs.
there had to be a place somewhere.
on our way home from church this morning we were driving in a snowstorm.
i made the decision that i'd stay home, not go driving around looking for somewhere abandoned.
at lunch i said to my husband
"i wish i could get to the old robin's nest, by the shed,"
"if you really want to photograph to you'll get to it."
i looked at the mess by the shed and saw no way to do it.
then the more i looked at it and thought about what he said,
i realized he was right.
i began seeing a way to climb up to get a good view of the next instead of a hinderance.
I did want to photograph it.
i would find a way.
i put on my boots.
and headed out, with Gertie, to see the nest.
shovelling the path on our way.
this nest has been abandoned by our beloved robin for a year and a half now.
she didn't go back to it this past summer.
i don't actually know if robins go back to the same nest or not.
i still think it's because i scared her babes one year and they
flew out dropped out of the nest.
they couldn't actually fly yet.
the momma bird rounded them up...
i don't know what happened to them.
but this nest was theirs.
we watched them hatch, grow.
and then i sent them to their deaths!
aren't birds' nests amazing.
