What is “Whimsy”? One of the definitions is “A quaint or fanciful quality”, and that’s what I went with in picking my photo for this week’s contest. My boy spotted this nest when there were eggs in it (Mama and Daddy Robin apparently built it while school was out for spring break, not realizing that they were down low in a heavily trafficked area). I took pictures every day or two, documenting the hatching and the rapid growth of the babies. This photo was taken the night of the spring band concert; if my boy hadn’t been in the concert, I would have never been at the school at that time. When they were done, he and I went over to grab a few pictures of the baby birds. Within a minute of taking this photo, the first one suddenly spread its wings and flew right by my head, followed in rapid succession by all but one. It WAS a magical and whimsical moment for both my son and me.
