Nested against the sky

I was waiting for my other half while he picked up some paperwork at the Hospice office the other day (He is a hospice volunteer visitor.) and was intriqued by the nest in this tree. I thought the tree filled the frame nicely against the sky. You can click on this one to enlarge, but you don't see much of the nest even at that. I guess I should put in for a telephoto lens.

Look for other Skywatch photos at the Skywatch blog.

Wow! I'm glad the nest caught your attention. It is a great tree to take against a sky, and the sky is fantastic!!

that is absolutely gorgeous.

i am amused by several things just this moment:
1) there is such a thing as a 'volunteer visitor'
2) it requires paperwork
3) there is a request to 'please keep it clean' in the comments. do you have many people swearing about trees?
perhaps it is the glass of wine. or perhaps not.
