Domicile of Color

"Tucked beneath the sheltering leaves,
the nested home awaits the return of it's caretakers. 
They protect it from harm and warm the eggs.
For once this sweet trio of tiny birds is born
into this world aloft within the arms of this supporting tree,
their task ensues: to feed with great urgency. 
A loving duty shared by both adults."

I love playing with my color palette here, and using unexpected colors in the shadows and crevices. The network of leaves in the background is my favorite area, and I love this broken textured area just spattered with branches and leaves.
