Simply very beautiful!
A stunning image of nature’s careless artistry, – thank you so much for sharing.
What a cute picture!
That one is really special, not only a great photo but you’ve captures it so well with your rhyme. Just wonderful!
Almost a picture of all 4 seasons; the nest being Spring, the berries for Autumn , the bare branches leafless of Winter. Beautiful.
That is really spectacular.
So so beautiful.
Beautiful image and words.
Lovely! Made me smile.
Reblogged this on Voices and Visions.
Very beautiful and nice!
Very beautiful combination of image and words!
What a surprising picture, the abandoned bird’s nest nestled into the abundant harvest of berries. Wondering what those berries might be – serviceberries, perhaps? This would make a beautiful holiday greeting card.
Hmm. Serviceberries I’m not familiar with those but I love the name. These are crabapples. A lovely tree with pink blossoms in the spring. It attracts many birds including a pileated woodpecker who visits it most every morning.
Crabapples! They look so beautiful and smooth like cherries. Serviceberries are out because they ripen in early fall and would be entirely consumed by wildlife by now. You might know them as Juneberries. They are the earliest white blossoms in the woods in spring.
A gorgeous photo and find. The poem is the rhyming capper. Lovely post.
Love the bright colours and the sweet little nest.
I love this – what a great image!
Like nothing I’ve ever seen!
Beautiful capture and great words to go with it! The contrast is great between the bright berries and the delicate twigs of the nest 🙂
