Fantastic! I have never figured out how to photograph birds successfully, but you really have the touch.

Wow, havalotta, I didn't know they nested on the ground too!

Here's a nice nest I found today.

I already stuffed my hands into one under a log earlier this year and got stung a total of what was it, 9 times this year!
You know.... walking and collecting photos for the sight. Rough business... this photo taking.
Sure glad I missed that one!

Sorry, but I don't put my hands where I can't see. They're gonna have to come out and get me if they want me.

spider Expanding the theme a bit...

A large ant hill is sometimes called a nest. Photo from a state park in North Carolina. I didn't try to ID the ants.
