"The Quest For A Nest. I was on my seemingly never ending search for a good wood duck pic when I was blessed to see this wonderful scene along the edge of a pond. Momma hummingbird was plucking fluffy nesting materials from the remnants of last years cattails. I had never gotten to witness a hummingbird in nest building mode before. It was awesome."~Mike Quesinberry
