Best Nests to Rest


There have been numerous posts on human architecture in which most of the architects have sharpened their skills with the help of education. However, these small birds and insects are naturally endowed with this super gift. We all find nests everywhere and are awed by the beauty of so many different nests which have been created by these wonderful creatures. In today’s post we have compiled some examples of ravishing architectural “Nests”.
The nests are built mostly by males; the nest’s shape, size and position reckons on the species. Although they may differ, their beauty keeps them a source of attraction for both kids and elders alike. Some of us might have tried to construct nests at summer camps. Those among us will definitely agree that these tiny creatures can do wonders. Enjoy the ultimate creativity!
