    Palm Tree festooned with weaver bird nests

    I just love the way this palm tree is hung with weaver birds nests.  They are very sociable and always nest together although the male of the species has to deal with very hard-to-please females.  Sometimes he will have to weave as many as seven nests before his mate will consider it good enough.  The ones that don’t pass muster are unceremoniously detached from the branch and dropped to the ground.
