When I first saw this delicate nest, deep within a holly bush, I could not believe how intricately woven the spindly twigs were. It was balanced precariously on one of the holly branches, fiercely protected by the dense screen of sharp leaves. What I like most about this image is the light; the way the background is dark, the leaves are shiny, and the nest is slightly shadowy. Home sweet home for some little bird.
