Default Nest

A quick trip to Palm Desert California to visit my Daughter and Grandson and what do I discover in a tree in their backyard? Pentax K5 and Pentax 300mm lens, manual focus because of all the branches surrounding the Humming Bird and it's nest!

Wow! I've never seen a nest either. They aren't very big, are they?
