Lupines are starting to bloom beside Bartlett Pond.
A robin has chosen to build her nest atop our porch lamp. It's a good and bad choice it seems: well-protected from the elements but close to humans going in and out the adjacent door.
Mom is very skittish and flies away anytime someone approaches the front porch. Here's mom getting ready to sit on the nest. Amy caught this view from inside the house hiding in the shadows so she couldn't be detected by mom robin. (Photo: courtesy Amy Davies).
Being tall, I can just hold my camera up above the nest and make a very quick image when mom is away. I hope I have the opportunity to see four hungry little mouths wide open the next time I point the camera within.
