Hidden Treasure - Shadow Shot Sunday


On our last walk through the abandoned Mega Church, Sissy showed me a charming discovery, inside the wall, where vandals had bashed waist-high holes into the sheet rock. 

A small brown wren had built a lovely nest within.  I gasped.  The brown speckled eggs snuggled into the heart shadow of nest were indeed Hidden Treasure.  A few days later Sissy called to say they'd hatched!  You can see these funny, wide-mouthed young'uns at Clytie's fascinating blog Random Stuff

It seemed the perfect entry for Shadow Shot Sunday, Mother's Day AND to celebrate the wonderful day my darling Sister Clytie was born!  Be sure to drop by Random Hearts to wish Sissy a Happy Birthday!

This really neat. I keep finding old nest but the birds and eggs are long gone.

Light is everything. It is the light that brings this further alive. Gorgeous.
