Nests - of two kinds!

First of all, DH got a new digital camera last weekend and we've been playing about with it - definitely a huge learning curve.  It certainly has a lot more bells and whistles than my little one does! 

We have been lucky the past week or so to be able to watch a nest of baby crows in the tree outside my studio window.  The babies are getting to be quite a size and pop up with their mouths wide open hoping for food every time any bird flies near.  I think there are three babies.

See?


AND....
further on nests.....

There is a beautiful nest being given away

I really shouldn't tell you, should I, because that cuts
down in my chances of winning!!

  1. NICE photo MA!
    I often wish my camera had a stronger zoom, but then if I bought a new one, I'd have to learn a lot of stuff....
    And heaven knows, I'm doing good with what I do now! ;-D

    Awaiting more pics!

    XXOO~~

    Your white cloth is looking amazing! Wonderful to incorporate your grandmother's embroidery - beautiful.
