Bringing up baby

After this wren nested in my back porch last summer, I trained my camera on his comings and goings. His brood of six chicks were born just as my own daughter came into the world and I began to feel a particular affinity for them.

One day I snapped her perching on this post in the driveway just before he brought in a new food parcel for the chicks. The pose in the photograph was perfect for this painting.
