last fall, i gave a bucket of chinese red glaze to a friend. i just wanted to show him what i had done with the glaze so i got the ladder out and climbed up to show him the birdhouse i made and hung last year. i knew it was empty because i had opened it last week and saw that it had been used. there was a beautiful hollow circle of twigs and feathers about the size of a golf ball.
got one shot and then opened the top to show the interior and surprised us both. quietly clicked the camera above my head and took my ladder and went away.
surprise! when i used "fix" on my computer, i saw the baby bird mouth in the first shot! i know that a wren used the nest because the birdhouse is tiny, the opening is tiny and the bird is really tiny. glad i hung it there!
these are reversed, the first one should be second.
