Weekly Photo Challenge: Home

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Home.

On our kayak trips, we paddle past homes worth millions

as well as some that are modest, but offer incomparable views and fresh sea breezes—

  1. That last one with the bridge, moon and nests is very nice. But it looks like some cold (and exposed) homes for them birds. (I’ll take the million dollar one, please. ;) )

  21. Though the big question is, who is happier? The people in the big fancy home or the people paddling past in their kayaks?

  32. Great pictures! I also didn’t know that cormorants nested communally like this. I’d much rather live in a tree with the birds than with the pompous folks who live in the first house. :D

  35. Cormorants are hardy birds and have an layer of fat to protect them when they dive in cold water. They are territorially aggressive and have significantly expanded their range in the past 20 years, driving out less aggressive fishers like American eagles and ospreys from New England shores. It’s all perfectly normal, not man-made and the eagles and ospreys have found other places to nest and fish … but if there’s one bird you don’t need to worry about, the cormorant is probably it. Great pictures!
