Comment left by: Olaf Greve (no e-mail specified) This would have been a great shot for the bokeh installment! :)

Comment left by: siddiq (no e-mail specified) that's either a very large nest (never seen that type before) or the 180 can focus pretty close.

Comment left by: Jon Mitchell (jon@jonmitch.co.uk) This is one I'd want that 1000 f11 for. Wouldn't want to be anywhere near those nasty critters !!

Great shot though. Particularly like the way the surface texture of the nest has come out. Almost like tortoise-shell.

Comment left by: Charles Sdunek (csdunek@softhome.net) I had thought about stretching the limits of the "architecture" theme, but certainly would not have pulled it off as brilliantly as you have. These are beautiful structures (especially when cold outside). Just for kicks, how about some shots of the inside after the tempuratures drop?
