Well back to this little nest. We had some big wind which broke down part of an old tree and I salvaged this cool nest. I am not sure but it appears to have started by doves and then topped off by another bird much different. I cradled it in tissue paper and finally decided to use it in my egg challenge, but no words came to me for it so it sat a couple days untouched. Then the little haiku I had written down so long ago just popped into my head, and then I popped it onto my image! I never know when I might get a "spark" of inspiration or from where, but this is one I am proud of. How can anything be prettier than a lovely songbird in the morning singing out over the breeze.
I processed the image in Light Room and then edited in Elements with a texture called kk_rainyday at a soft overlay. The tissue holding the next added an extra layer behind that I really like.
Hope you enjoy my little story and image.
