My view

Welcome to 'Bird's Eye View'!

When I was 18 my father handed me a Nikon and told me to get in the car. We drove through sleepy little Iowa towns and down winding gravel roads. He started me on what will be a life long journey of seeing the world through the lens of my camera.

To me photography is an art. The art of capturing a moment or a natural expression is what I love to do. I will give you direction and then find your personality within that pose.

What I see through my lens is no different than what you see every day - the only difference is I have the ability to stop time and provide you with those memories.

Project 365: Day 123 Brother from another mother

I went back to check on the little nest.... and found something quite peculiar....

Do you see what I see? 

My FIL told me that it is a 'Cat' Bird' egg. Apparently these dead beat mom-birds go around laying eggs in other bird's nests and letting them raise their babies!

But, that little Robin lay happily on her nest of three babies.... without a care in the world.

Oh, how beautiful! I wish I cold so easily sit on unfamiliar eggs with such unquestioning dedication (figuratively, of course. I don't literally sit on eggs, but I think you get it...)
