But that's what I love about Kat's Photo Heart Challenge. We're not picking the most interesting photo of the month or the most technically proficient...but the one that speaks to us for some reason.
There was just something about the tiny bird's nest nestled in this newborn tree that arrested my attention. As you can tell from the background, there are so many other seemingly better choices - more mature trees that would provide better protection, a more secure station in life. Choosing one of the others would seem so much more sensible. Looking at this fragile little stick of a tree proudly wearing that nest had me feeling inspired by the bird who built it. It's as if our feathered friend is telling us - THIS is the tree I love. I'm going to follow my heart.
