Without really meaning to, I shot a series of photos with a "home" theme. Seven hundred sixty-three people call Doniphan home...
...or over eight hundred, depending on which sign you believe.
This old cottonwood, I'm reasonably certain, is used as a nesting site by a pair of American kestrels.
Cliff swallows' mud nests under a Platte River bridge.
This Baltimore oriole nest is tightly-woven enough to have survived the winter more or less intact, but they'll build another this spring.
A pair of muskrat lodges.
Finally, a reminder of territorial conflict—the flip side of domesticity. This area was home for the Lakota before settlers like the Martin family showed up. I call this the "good shot" memorial.
The last few images are nothing to do with the home theme, just a few pictures that happened to turn out reasonably well. Top to bottom: lone redhead; geese on skim ice; still life with cattails.
