Well... as it would have it, I stumbled upon a robin's nest today purely by accident. Of course, NOTHING is EVER accidental. Anyhow, I was out taking pictures today before I cut the grass. I started with my apple blossoms and then noticed chemtrails. Naturally, I take pictures of those when I'm outside with the camera. I ventured up into the kid's playhouse to get a better view above the neighboring houses and lo-and-behold, inside one of the window openings lies a nest complete with newly hatched babies. Man are birds ugly without feathers, lol. I scared away (not on purpose) the father who was watching the hatchlings. He then sat on a wire and squawked at me the entire time I was up there, naturally. So, after I was done with the chemtrails, I took pictures of the babies and then the father.
I always say (and I truly believe) EVERYTHING happens for a reason and happens as it should. That being said, I have been wanting to get a nice close-up shot of a robin, facing the camera, since last summer. Well, today I got my chance alright. I was even then able to get a picture of the mother when she returned to the nest shortly after.
Here are my pictures to go along with my story.
