Quango-Bingo Travels: France, March 2012 - Day 4: Building
An update on Team A.
Last year, these girls built a nest in my mum’s greenhouse (bottom photo). They’re not keen on using it again, instead preferring to start from scratch. This year, though, there seem to be different factions - at least three different nests have been started - all within a foot of the original nest.
My mum’s happy with them being there - she talks to them when she goes in to water the plants and (*fingers crossed*) they seem like a pretty docile bunch :)
As for Team B, they have also re-started their nest (though as this is in the lid of the wood burner, it’s likely to be a short-lived venture once again).

Quango-Bingo Travels: France, March 2012 - Day 2 (continued): Textures and Patterns
Featuring lichen on a terracotta roof, the remains of Team A’s nest from last year, star-shaped nails on the greenhouse door and soot in the wood-burner.
Aside from miniature worlds and tiny beasties, I really love finding patterns, textures and shapes when I’m out with my camera. I really think that, when you get in close, things take on a whole new aspect. Truly magical.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the garden, Team B had some serious catching up to do…
