Description

In 2015 we were fortunate to have a pair of robins build a nest in a very large maple tree next to our deck. We watched (and I photographed from a ladder-blind and 300 mm lens) the parents feed and raise the young. One very stormy, rainy night, while I was protected under the deck’s roof, I looked at the nest and shot this one photo of the wet mother doing all she could to keep her young dry and warm. The next morning all were fine and things were back to normal.
