  2. Still blows my mind to this day, the ability of birds to construct nests, some of which as we see here are simply incredible in design and form. I've watched with great intrigue, documentaries featuring these birds and how lucky you are Eric to have seen in life! And this is a splendid image you have shared. Posted 2 months ago
    1. Thank you so much Ruth!
