Bird's Nest Portal by pinguino Bird's Nest Portal by pinguino
This was taken at the Arcadia Botanical Gardens. This is David ( ~-aster ), a very special person in my life. I took his camera and shot this with it.

Bird's Nest Portal by `pinguino
The suggester says, "Just stumbled across this again after having found it years ago! It's a fantastic expressive portrait, I love the idea and the execution!"
And I have to say that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.... or in a nest... or, whatever... :) ( Suggested by Kaz-D and Featured by WDWParksGal )

That's a really cool shot! Not sure if you've watched America's Next Top Model but this reminds me of the Birds shoot in Brazil.

I have to ask, is the Arcadia you mention in So Cal? I know my Arcadia has a botanical gardens, but I've never been before. I'd love to explore it if it has gorgeous locations like this. =)

Great shot, btw. I love the angle and his expression.

thanks! Yes, Arcadia in SoCal. I don't know if the structure is still there (this was 2008) but it's a wonderful property with lots of wild peacocks running around. You should definitely check it out. Especially now, since all the flowers would be in bloom.
