A wren decided to nest in this safety top for an industrial oxygen bottle, which was on my torch set cart. I saw the wren fly, so I moved the top with her nest to a place on the wall near the door, and about six ft from it's original location. She found it right away, and is happily sitting on her four eggs undisturbed now. She's getting used to me coming and going and all the noise in the shop.
Canon SX510, braced for stability on a piece of 2" square tubing laid across the air compressor.
UPDATE: Three of the four eggs hatched, and the three fledglings have left the nest over the weekend.

I must say that it is a great moment that was caught, I'm not quite sure whether there are any feathers in the image to depict the theme correctly
