Circle Of Life


A pair of robins have built a nest atop a head-gate in one of the farm buildings. The parents were quite angry with me for being so near their nest and screamed at me from a nearby tree as I took a few quick pics of it last evening.

Which is a curious thing when you think about it:

The robins, in spite of being afraid of me, were willing to risk their lives to protect their babies.

-Babies that may be nothing more than a collection of cells at this point, unseen by their parents, but recognized by them to be their babies.

-Not fully formed, but fully deserving of their parent’s protection, care, and love.
