Coming upon a nest or a burrow or log hollow always stops me in my tracks. Seeing the fish in a pond I visit swim over their nests protecting that small space captivates me.  There is something amazing about finding the home of another creature.  I have a feeling that I’ve stumbled upon something special – like a peek into these animal’s private worlds.

How do you feel when you encounter another creature’s residence?

Bluegill fish like to build their nests around other bluegill nests. Sometimes there are so many nests that the nest beds touch and look like honeycombs.  The male protects the nest until the babies are large enough to go off on their own.
