It hit almost 100F today with humidity to match!!! But after sketching from photos most of the week (late nights and late work!!), I wanted to get back to some plein air. So I sat on my shaded porch and sketched my strawberry basket (sketchbook style).
A wren has built a nest camouflaged within its leaves, and as I sketched, the wren gave me quite a scolding!! But she eventually returned to her five eggs and left me to my painting.
The nest is doing a bit of damage to the plant, but I've decided I'd just as soon watch the wrens!
