I am on a birding tour over the next few weeks in KwaZulu Natal - South Africa. We shall be visiting one of my favourite weaver colonies to photography the Easter Golden Weaver (Ploceus subaureus) as seen in the picture, Thick-billed Weaver and Village Weaver to name a few. Why not join me on my next birding photo tour.. DM for information

Did the fact that, in the last three weeks, I’ve been stung by both a bee and a yellow jacket stop me from getting closer to this architectural masterpiece? Not on your life! I thought it would be a hornets’ nest, but the insects coming and going looked more like bees of some sort. #dontstingmeagainplease #naturesarchitects #mothernaturerocks #natirarpark #insectnest

My treasure :) from our quick walk in the woods to cool off after a trip to (hot) Portland yesterday with broken A/C. • 
Pieces of this #baldfacedhornetsnest were spread all over. All dead. It most likely had been sprayed, as it was around the base of a big tree near the restroom. Mine, all mine. Ha ha. The always fascinating architecture! And beautiful paper. Scary, nasty, little beasts...but incredible.

I spent last night and this a.m. planning Damian's first birthday party. Then, finally creeping out of our airconditioned fortress, I saw this most spectacular orb weaver creation! 
I am overjoyed at this first sign of the bestest season!
Not only to celebrate our beautiful son's first bday- It is going to be amazing, my head is spinning with crafts, decorations, and activities!
But, I also get to attend my birthday present from my bestie @shedoesntdoesshe - @arcticmonkeys concert right after Damian's party! Man, what a fun-filled day it will be!

Last night's storm did a number on this web but the architect, a rather large spider, is still hiding out in the withered bloom.

Inspecting the hives - we found this and I just had to take a photo to show you! There was a space between the frames so they built #comb  down off the top cover - they are so #incredible. The fact that everything is built so precise is just crazy. #fascinating #naturesarchitects #perfect #honeycomb #honeybees #beekeeping #naturemadehoney #honeybeelove
Cutest damn thing I've seen today. A wasp scraping wood for chewing to make its nest. That noise though #nature #scraping #flatout #bitingmouth #mandible #homemaker #nofilter #niche #insects #naturesarchitects #arthropods
07/01/18: European Paper Wasp. I found this guy on my patio. Paper wasps chew up bark and other material, mix it with saliva, and turn it into a paper like paste to use for their nest. Hence the name “paper wasp” #wasp #beehappy #naturesarchitects #animalphotography #naturephotography #paperwasp #backyardcritters #insects #bugsthatsting #hardworkers

The incredible architecture of the Cliff Swallow,  new to nesting under our eaves.  Our valley swallows seem to have organized themselves - Barns have taken one cabin while the Cliffs have bagged the new addition.
We welcome them all and thank them for their part in eating the clouds of mosquitos that have hatched out after all the rain.

NEST.. must admit seeing it’s friyay! I wouldn’t mind curling up in the soft down of this beautifully made nest if I was a baby bird.

The last few years wasps tried to build their homes on my #balcony but this year it's a more welcome guest: a #leafcutter #bee.🐝 She carries neatly cut pieces of #leaves, and #pollen into her nest to make sure the larvae have a cosy home and a full fridge when they hatch. 
Well, looks a bit as if she arrives on a magic carpet...😊 #leafcutterbee #insects #megachile #nature #naturephotography #naturesarchitects #Biene #Blattschneiderbiene #Natur #canon #canonphoto #canonphotography

This book... I finished this morning with tears to my eyes.. not of sadness but tears that are from a changing tide. It’s unbelievable that in our lifetime we will very likely see beavers living wild throughout the UK once more. This book talks of a changing landscape both architecturally as beavers move in but also of mindset, in people who slowly start to allow wildlife to manage wildlife once again #rewilding #ecosystemrestoration #beaver #jimcrumley #naturesarchitects

This little bird’s nest was on our patio fan for years until I removed it to refinish the fans.  We had babies every year in this nest that is now a decoration. #birdsnest #naturaldecor #naturesarchitects

Walked to kinder in the fog and saw nothing but walking back the sun appeared to reveal these beautiful creations 😍#spiderweb #beautyofnature #naturesarchitects
The Art of Architecture isn’t limited to human beings alone. Certain creatures from the insect world create incredible little structures - like this Ootheca, built by a Praying Mantis. It’s a foamy little weather-proof case that the female builds around her eggs,permanently relieving her of baby-sitting duties. The Ootheca protects the eggs from micro-organisms, predators and the weather. Amazingly, it is porous in hot climates and smooth where it’s wet and tropical. Even more amazingly, every species of Mantis creates Oothecae of different shape, size and colour. .
.
There could be as many as 400 eggs inside. The nymphs hatch inside the safety of the Ootheca and may emerge several months later. I guess that makes it an incubator and nursery rolled into one. .

Nestled in feathers, cattail fluff, moss, and rabbit fur is one little fragile Anna's egg. Female hummingbirds typically lay 2 eggs per nest at differing intervals that hatch on the same day. The mother controls incubation (to achieve same day hatching) and after a period of 16 - 18 days, they emerge from their shells, in which she disposes. She will then busy herself between keeping the nestlings warm with her body and feeding them a regurgitated mix of arthropods and nectar every 20 minutes or so. Within a few days, they will double in size and begin to grow pin feathers and resemble little prickle balls. The last photo of this series shows an aerial view of the nest (which is not visible from this angle)- and demonstrates the mother's careful planning in choosing this location.

Have you watched the fairies when the rain is done, 
Spreading out their little wings to dry them in the sun?

I watched as a pair of lovely Black-capped Chickadees (Poecile atricapillus)excavated a nest cavity in this dead snag over the weekend. I located their efforts by ear- their little beaks were quietly pecking into the rotten tissues. It was adorable to watch them fly out of the chamber with a mouth full of wood chips and  then land on a nearby blackberry vine, shaking the debris from their bills or sometimes hanging outside of the hole and letting the wind take the shavings. The female would have chosen this site and once it is hollowed out, she will build a cup -shaped nest lined in soft materials that will house her 6-8 speckled eggs. #animalbehavior #ethology #birdlanguage #birdbehavior #orthinology #chickadees #blackcappedchickadee #poecileatricapillus #nature #pnw #pnwbirds #birddnerd #nestcavity #nests #nestbuilding #naturesarchitects #natureart #natureobservations #connectwithnature #natureconnection #spring #babyseason

Anatomy of an incomplete and abandoned Anna's Hummingbird nest. The first photo shows the beginning constructs of the nest and materials used: spider webs, moss, and fluff. The second photo is a shot from underneath the structure-allowing you to see how it is secured to the branch. The last two photos show the width and depth of the nest as well as how meticulously it has been anchored to the limb of the tree. The interior looks incredibly inviting for two pea-sized white eggs, however, this adorably amazing nest remains deserted.

Dreaming of the wild and wonderful West Tassie coast

#itrocks #keepoff #tarkinecoast #coutarocks #naturesarchitects #tasmania
I have often wondered why hummingbirds are frequently seen sticking their tongues out. I still have not found an answer, though I have combed many scholarly works, which only note tongue protrusion at nectar sites (reasonably so 🤓). Perhaps I will one day stumble on this secret and learn the behavior behind it. This busy mama was diligently working away at constructing her nest and in the second photo she was observed collecting spiderwebs to anchor it securely to the branch. Sadly, when I checked on her progress last weekend, I found that she had abandoned it. There could be a number of reasons for doing so, primarily: possible predation, poor nest location, or interference. This particular nest had been situated in a heavy trafficked fly zone where I heard numerous male Anna's territorial diving and chirping. It was also waist high, and though well concealed, once found would have been an easy meal for a corvid or squirrel.

I had one of the most precious wildlife encounters today. While out connecting with the land, I heard the chirps of a female Anna's nearby. I found her in a dense cluster of salmonberry, where she flew directly into my face, not 3 inches away. We held one another's eyes for a moment and then she took to a branch and began preening. This, of all days, when I chose not to bring my camera! I enjoyed time with her for awhile, when, to my surprise, she darted to her nest a few feet away! I watched her snuggle into this perfect sphere and praised her. She trusted me with this information and how honored I am. How deeply grateful. This is the third hummingbird nest I have found this year and I truly believe the heart leads us on the paths we are meant to take in this life. Deep soul knowings. Little earthquakes. ♡
