I have taken my camera with me, as I went to work.
Later I would take some pics of birds' nests along the Eisenbach on my way home... as I looked out of the window I spot a nest of a crow... at eye level! But all the branches blocked my view...
My workmate Lady Kate meant "Well, for a better sight you gotta climb on top of the roof!"... hmmm... My boss allowed it and an other workmate helped me with the ladder and opened the porthole... I approached the brink... and the nest.
Never, never! I had such an eye contact with a bird before!
I told the crow mom that I am harmless... wanna only take a pic,
then I am off! Same to crow dad...
and that was about it... thank you, crows, thank you @work!
On my way home along the Eisenbach
Hum, singing, warble and nests
Try to build a nest, too...
and decide better to do a drawing:
I take an old print of a linocut
(you can find it here, before I cut it into pieces for a type area... wanted it for 'Frühlings Erwachen' by Frank Wedekind, but there were too little rosebuds, so the prints wait a long time in my dresser for... for today!)
and draw on it with wax crayon a blackbird hen, an egg and a nest
Yah, Nest is my theme for this week's drawing challenge and these are the fantastic artists , based in the USA and Canada, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany that are playing today... please visit them:
