Cloud Nests
These nests were all found by my mother in her garden on the outskirts of Christchurch in New Zealand. They are full of the energy of their creators, each with it's own character. I photographed them floating so that they can break free from the ground on which they were found. There is a melancholy to some of the photographs as the presence of the eggs shells most likely signals a failure of the brood.
